Bird is most definitely the word in this case.

Without a doubt, the best home purchase we’ve ever made is a little fountain. Nearly every day various birds can be spotted enjoying the running water. Today I set up the camera and remotely captured some of the ongoing drama and primping that occurs outside our office window.  Please feel free to add your own captions in the comments.

Detour on Buttermilk

The trail will remain the same once the work is completed. They’re just taking care of a ramp that’s seen better days.

From RVA Trail Report:

ATTENTION: There will be a detour in effect on Buttermilk starting tomorrow and lasting several weeks. The wood and brick ramp just west of the Reedy Creek parking lot is being completely re-built. The detour is well-marked, just follow the yellow arrows and signs. This project is being completely funded by a generous donation to RVA-MORE from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous. Thanks to all to helped make this happen !!

Richmond BizSense.com Reporting on Continental Coming to Manchester

A new restaurant for the Manchester area.

Published

on

The Continental Westhampton is a staple for diners on Grove. Eventually, those of us South of the river will have our very own Continental to call our own at 609 Hull Street. Continental brings to the table a diverse menu that you can check out here. I highly recommend the meatloaf.

From the full-article on Richmond BizSense.com:

Giavos said Continental Manchester will be a similar concept to his Continental Westhampton that’s been open for eight years along the Libbie-Grove corridor.

“We decided to take the ‘W’ in Continental Westhampton and flip it upside down for Manchester,” he said.

“It’ll be neighborhood-friendly, accessible, not too expensive. Hopefully it’ll be good for that neighborhood. There are so many young professionals over there, hopefully I can bring something that’s a needed commodity.”

According to the article no date is set for projected opening.

Critter of the Week

Critters of the Week

A wild critter we spotted in the RVA area and a critter up for adoption by SPCA or RACC.

Published

on

Where Spotted: Belle Isle
Common Name:  Double-crested Cormorant aka Mr. Submariner
Scientific Name: Phalacrocorax auritus
Average Length: 28–35 in
Average Wingspan: 45–48 in
Average Weight: 2.6–5.5 lb

Quick Facts

  • When swimming, the bird sits low in the water with its neck and head showing; from there it plunges into the deep to catch fish at depths of up to 25 feet.
  • It can stay submerged for over a minute.
  • After diving, it spends long periods standing with its wings outstretched to allow them to dry, since they are not fully waterproofed.
  • When their eggs hatch after about a month, the adult cormorants will shade the chicks from the sun using their wings.
