I have had a very slow couple of weeks since we last spoke. Motivation to Crush has been low due to lack of birds and an excess of fog and wind. Still, I have managed to make a few Crushings here and there. The secret for success during these comfortless times is to greatly lower your standards when looking for Crushing victims. Anything becomes fair game at this point. Here are the wholly unremarkable Crush subjects from my last few weeks on the Farallones.
|On dull days such as I am experiencing, it becomes necessary to Crush abysmally common birds such as this Red-winged Blackbird. I don't mind. It helps people to find the simple beauty of their mundane everyday lives.|
|Warbling Vireos sometimes engage in their own kind of crushing. This one is crushing a Cormorant Fly while I Crush its face.|
|Black-throated Gray Warbler is among the finest of all warblers. Also one of the most cooperative when it comes to Crushing. This one served itself up like a lamb for slaughter.|
*No animals were harmed during the crushing of this web log.
