I'm Chris, professional detective of the ages, part-time chickadee, full-time Bird Prince, and certified kaiju hunter.
Also, I make games. And somehow I make enough money selling them to buy food stuff and pay rent stuff and cat stuff, so I guess this is the part in my profile where I say that's kind-of, sort-of, definitely my job now.
I code in Python, use PS CS6, prefer paper and pencil, write a lot, and am self-taught.
I love the Batfamily and wish I was a Robin and secretly pretend I'm Nightwing while city exploring at night. In reality, I'm not remotely that cool and never will be.
Some birds, it seems, hold funerals for their dead.
When western scrub jays encounter a dead bird, they call out to one another and stop foraging.
The jays then often fly down to the dead body and gather around it, scientists have discovered.
The behaviour may have evolved to warn other birds of nearby danger, report researchers in California, who have published the findings in the journal Animal Behaviour.
The revelation comes from a study by Teresa Iglesias and colleagues at the University of California, Davis, US.
Scrub jays!! I'm so sad I'll never see my favourite birds because I'm on the wrong continent... :(
I know how you feel - that’s how it is for me and house martins (favorite bird)
The Scrub Jays here are really loud and have a distinct cry, so you always know when they’re around
There’s a Jay that’s staked territory around our apartment as his own - I hear him most days. When the other Jays came by yesterday, he got so annoyed and completely lost it and chased them off. One time, he actually came to our porch. I’ll be putting out bird seed soon and will try to get some good pictures or video if he stops by again
Oh yeah, I forgot, but I saw a bunch of Western Scrub Jays fighting over territory outside our apartment yesterday. Think there were at least three and they were screaming at the top of their lungs and chasing each other. Big feather fight. I haven’t seen them today, so I guess they (hopefully) sorted their shit out. Lot’s of crows and robins this afternoon
I watched the first 20 minutes of Under the Red Hood with my non-Batman friend last night before I decided to quiz him on character names and this is what he was able to come up with
So glad the rain has finally replaced the nonstop days of sunnyness in this corner of the world
About to walk home through the city at night in the rain before getting back to working on Graverobber coding and writing. Just a couple of my favorite things
Today has been pretty nice
