I've been listening to a great podcast about the life of the last Tsarina of Russia, Alexandra Feodorovna, and it struck me how similar her children were to a lot of fundie kids we know. Profoundly socially isolated, very limited education, mom mostly focused on the youngest, most sickly child (but expects the oldest daughter to be responsible for him), and reportedly, acted far younger than their actual ages due to their isolation and limited education. And they really liked taking selfies, believe it or not.
Am thrilled to post this shot of a male prairie warbler in our backyard this afternoon! It's the first one we've ever seen in our yard, ever. Can't believe I was in the right place at the right time to get some good shots of him...birding rush!!!
