Friday Bird Blogging


I’m not quite reduced to posting pictures of seagulls yet, but I’m getting there if those baby geese don’t show up soon. In the meantime, here’s a snowy egret. We don’t often see them in our local pond, though they’re hardly uncommon around here. There are lots of them in a nearby marsh, and at least a few who hang out in a nearby flood control channel. But we get them every once in a while. They’re lovely critters, aren’t they?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
