A friend of mine suggested that my next post after the Dorje Shugden/NKT one should be something about the dangerous intersection of religion and politics. Good topic. Mighty good topic. And it’s even one that I’ve been thinking about lately. However, my head hurts from being lectured at in my own blog. I just want to want to talk about my newest obsession: Clara and Carlos.
Clara and Carlos are the Peregrine Falcon pair who have layed a clutch of eggs on top of the San Jose, CA City Hall. The three eyesses (aka baby falcons) are now at that adorable stage of looking like fluffy little drunks. They weeble, they wobble and then down they go. Feeding time is the best. But, then again, I never fail to be amused at their post-feeding comas where they all collapse into a pile of fluff.
While George and Gracie, the PG&E (San Francisco) falcons will always be my first love, since they have decided to retire to Marin and stay out of the spotlight, Clara and Carlos will now occupy a window on my browser during daylight hours. Please enjoy the falcon cam.
And here is a little taste of some prime falcon viewing:
