Paragliding at Pacifica


This was me ridge soaring at the coast years ago when I was very daring, and didn’t bruise so easily. I’ve also done thermals, but have retired my wing and plan to stay on the ground from now on after being convinced earlier this year at Ed Levin that it might be too much fun to live with.

White Bird Found – is he yours?

This finch was on the backyard fence eating part of a fig, and didn’t fly away when we approached. (Seems to respond to the name Atticus, but maybe I’m projecting 😉


When I put our spare cage on the fence, he walked right into it and started eating the seeds and drinking the water.

Inside the house on the table with our parakeets there commenced a cacophony of BIRD TALK <-( Note: One of these 4 audio files might work without you having to do anything. )


He’s cute, but we’d like to find his owner before Twister and Wanker think about making a meal out of him.

The “Found Pet” flyer we posted at Elva’s Coffee Stop caught the eye of the owner. He came over right away and easily transferred Atticus to his home cage:
