Trip to the first Starbucks in Italy. Via Cordusio in Milan [Video] (3:20)

Trip to the first Starbucks in Italy. Via Cordusio in Milan [Video] (3:20)

We just happened to arrive in Milan on the day that Starbucks opened their first store in Italy. It was all over the news and the day before there was a line down the block to enter. I stopped by the next day. It was busy but no wait to check out this “amusement park” of a coffee bar.

Please forgive the heavily stabilized video as the GoPro did not react well to being worn while walking.

More photos and panoramas coming soon!

A Minute in Milano 2 – Piazza del Duomo at Night

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Piazza del Duomo in Milan at Night The world’s first shopping mall.😀 An amazing place I visited on a number of occasions during this trip. Also home to an amazing Leonardo exhibit. This is adjacent to the Piazza del Duomo and was filled with people and music each evening. A perfect place for passeggiata, and Italian evening stroll.

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii), Van Nuys, CA, July 8, 2018 – 2 in a series [Video]

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii), Van Nuys, CA, July 8, 2018 – 2 in a series [Video]

A Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) in the garden. A closer, head and shoulders shot.

This series of videos were taken on a particularly hot day hence the bees and hawk were both making great use of the birdbath. The hawk appears a bit annoyed when bees buzz by or try to land on them, but otherwise unperturbed by sharing the space.

A female Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) made an appearance over a few days here in the garden. I am guessing she was migrating north for the summer as grosbeaks are not a regular visitor.

A Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) in the garden again, so I’ll be sharing a series of video clips of its behaviors for those interested in raptors. This one appears to be a different hawk from previous videos as it looks much smaller at least to my eyes,
