- 6 April: Sean Wyer unpacks a word that has always puzzled me: naff.
- 1 May: Box #68 hatched out â€” Hooded Merganser (Lophodytes cucullatus).
- 3 June: Iâ€™m Washingtonian-famous, for the month at least, recommending Mucca Pazzaâ€™s Tiny Desk Concert.
- 5 July: After my annual scuffling with the Google chart API, I can post the summary graph of nesting activity for 2021.
- 1 August: ã“ã®ã€€ã¡ã‹ãã«ã€€ã‚³ãƒ³ãƒ“ãƒ‹ãŒã€€ã‚ã‚Šã¾ã™ã€‚
