A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Birds in the cold: ‘More seed, please’

Written January 14th, 2024 by Hasso Hering

Note to self: Stock up on bird seed for the next time we get one of these nasty spells of ice, snow and freezing cold.


What you see on the Perwinkle Bikepath

Written July 30th, 2023 by Hasso Hering

One of my bike routes through Albany takes me along the Perwinkle Bikepath, and on it you can see different kind of sights, from wildlife to trash.


Neighbors: P&W Railroad and Water Gardens

Written April 18th, 2022 by Hasso Hering

A chance to work on the railroad? That sounds intriguing. Makes you wish you were a lot younger than you probably are.


Entertained by the bird life outside

Written November 28th, 2020 by Hasso Hering

These little guys come by every once in a while. They gang up on the feeder outside my study window, as though to entertain me with their twittering ways. But really just to get a quick bite.


Who done it: Bird feeder mystery

Written January 3rd, 2016 by Hasso Hering

Some kind of vandalism is easy to excuse. When, for instance, you’re a squirrel — perhaps, allegedly — and there, in a tree, you find some suet to still your hunger during a night of ice and snow.


Slow down for wildlife, too

Written September 7th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Now that school is back in session, we’re supposed to be extra careful in watching out for little children in traffic. While we’re doing that, we might also want to watch out for wildlife, especially deer, meandering along our country roads.


The Blizzard of ’14

Written February 7th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

This winter storm may not become a routine event in western Oregon (we hope). Still, it is a useful reminder of what nature can do, and if we were not fully prepared this time, maybe we’ll do better from now on, or at least as long as we remember the Blizzard of 2014.
