birdy morning

I couldn’t resist doing a birding loop around Nubi this morning. There was a lot to see/hear, but nothing really unusual and fewer warblers than I’d hoped. Fortunately there were some enjoyable highlights:

three (!) great blue herons on top of trees (!!!) near the start of the white dot trail a male turkey displaying . . . → Read More: birdy morning

Building Community: Interview with Sage & Richard

Richard, Sage, Elsbeth & Catherine in Wyoming

In the almost five years that I’ve gotten to know Richard and Sage, who are Nubi co-founders and neighbors, I’ve often heard them refer to the Nubi project with both exasperation and love.

Evolution of the Nubi Cohousing Farm

The farm at Nubi comes alive in early summer: dewy, early morning harvests, exuberant pigs moving to fresh ground, the scent of fresh cut hay.

We welcome all sorts of visitors here at Nubi. Some decide to stay. Others move on, apparently happy to stick with their current housing.

kestrel & other good birding

We haven’t succeeded yet in having kestrels nest at Nubi, but I’ve been thrilled in the last few days to see a male American Kestrel hanging out extensively around our farm field. I first saw him on top of the Tuckers’ house a couple days ago, and yesterday he was on our house at one . . . → Read More: kestrel & other good birding

return of the otter

Nearly three years to the day after an otter was first spotted in our neighborhood pond, we had another otter (perhaps the same?) visiting for several hours on Saturday. Sue first informed me of its presence in the morning, and before long, the otter had many admirers, young and old.

Some of the kids recently had a spurt of spontaneous sidewalk art-making, so I just thought I’d post a photo….. Seeing their drawings on the roads here is one of my favorite things about being in a pedestrian neighborhood.
