The Silence of the Blog

Sorry for the posting hiatus. Things are picking up at work, and there are a number of issues we are dealing with under deadlines otherwise.

I am working up a post to appear here and at Panda’s Thumb soon concerning unacknowledged errors in an antievolution essay.

There has been some recent progress on modifications that I am making to Avida. Jeff Barrick and I had a very productive session going over some things on Tuesday, including various scenarios of using spatially limited resources. There’s also a proposal that I am contributing some draft text to.

The hawks are still molting, which has pushed back our hunting season. Rusty still has her deck feather from last year’s molt; she may end up using it for the next year if it doesn’t drop soon.

We are also looking over the list of items that were stolen last year and getting replacements ordered for things we haven’t yet gotten around to. There’s a one-year window of opportunity to put in for replacement cost, so we want to take advantage of that.

    Speaking of hawks and the like, I read once that golden eagles can be used like hawks or falcons, and have been known to bring down wolves in Kyrghizistan. Now that’s serious hunting.

    Golden eagles are used in falconry. For some time, US Fish and Wildlife Service declined to issue permits for golden eagles within the falconry permit system, but we seem to have gotten past that now.

    For myself, a Harris’s hawk is about the right size, large enough to hunt interesting game, and not so large that it might start thinking about whether I’m tasty.
