Grilling Steaks and Learning Things

A tri-tip steak takes about 20 minutes or so to grill.  Setting up the grill and taking a few sips of beer brings your outdoor time to somewhere over a half an hour.  Here's what I learned in that half hour:

  • The chestnut-backed chickadees are back in their bird box for almost 20 years straight, except for the season I didn't clean it out and a bumblebee colony occupied it.
  • I learned the song of the black-headed grosbeak by patiently listening, then finally observing the singer.
  • I think I know the general area of a robin's nest by seeing them fly into the woods in exactly the same spot several times.
