Bob Garrett's Talking Points: Astrological event falls with Daylight Savings Time


Mott must have thought that his truck could ram its way through the road block because he drove right into the fully-lit Game Commission vehicle injuring the officers, himself and causing a lot of damage to the vehicles. According to a Game Commission news release, three loaded rifles and a spotlight were found inside of Mott's vehicle. Mark Rutkowski, the Game Commission's law-enforcement supervisor for the Northeast Region, stated that, "Our wildlife conservation officers work all hours to curtail poaching activities and protect Pennsylvania's wildlife resources."

The good folks up at Cornell University's Ornithology Laboratory have launched their 2013 FeederWatch Program. Individuals, classes of students, scouting organizations and anyone else can log onto to learn about all of the resources that are offered from this lab.

What's most impressive is that the site is interactive. You can watch birds eating and playing at feeders in faraway places. You can also post your feeder pictures and discuss the birds that you're seeing locally with other bird watchers. There are very successful FeederWatch Cam stationed in Ontario and in Manitoba that are a lot of fun to watch. The official "FeederWatch Season" starts this Friday, so this is a great time to check out this site.

Please keep in mind that you'll want to check out the cams during daylight hours. Otherwise, you'll get to watch a really boring "show."
