Female turkeys and their poults have a similar appearance; however there is still a significant size difference in August, which makes it easy to tell them apart. There may be more than one female turkey present; an individual brood will frequently join with another to give the flock more than one female to keep a watchful eye out for the combined broods.

PA Game Commission looks for help in turkey survey

The PA Game Commission (PGC) again is looking for public help through the month of August for a turkey sighting survey. This is a citizen-science project where the number of adult male and female, and poult (young) turkeys are counted.

The scene of the crime

After last Saturday’s work-in-progress showing of “CABIN,” a piece of dance theatre by Brooklyn-based artist Sean Donovan, the audience at North American Cultural Laboratory (NACL Theatre) engaged in a panel discussion on the subject of place in theatre.

Fever pitch

The news has focused on the deadly heat-waves across Europe, Asia and North America this summer, and the catastrophic heat, as well as drought-fueled wildfires in California.

Dog day afternoon

Most of the year, I’m not all that fond of “adulting,” what with work, bills and obligations up the wazoo, but when summer rolls around, it’s easier to slip into the old mindset of a carefree childhood and make time for some good old-fashioned fun.

Lyme disease: 2018 update

Lyme disease has continued to be a common diagnosis among dogs, cats, horses and humans in the first half of 2018. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium. The disease is transmitted through the bite of an infected tick and can affect many species. Currently, one out of five dogs are infected with the bacteria.

As of August 2018, the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System protects 12,754 miles of 209 rivers in 40 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico—less than one-quarter of one percent of the nation’s rivers. New York has approximately 51,790 miles of river, of which 73.4 miles are designated as wild and scenic—roughly 1/10th of 1% of the state’s river miles. Currently the only New York waterway protected under this system is the Upper Delaware River.

Two to celebrate

In October, two significant 50-year anniversaries will be celebrated: the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and the National Trails System Act.

A sense of place

“You look wonderful!” a friend exclaimed, seeing me at the NACL festival recently. That friend was a founder and former artistic director of said theatre company, and she was looking pretty good herself. “What is it?” she wanted to know, imagining who knows what? A lover, cool-sculpting, a facelift?

‘If music be the food of love, play on’

I’m pretty sure that William Shakespeare wrote those very words in his play “Twelfth Night,” but I’m too lazy to look it up and don’t want to bore you with the details. What I will share is that a passion for music (and opera in particular) was never more evident than at the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, NY last Saturday night.

Summer allergies

Now that summer is here, allergy suffers are reacting to agents associated with this season. April showers and May flowers and their associated allergens change over to tree pollen in late spring and then in summer to grasses, weeds and other seasonal challenges.
