I love the Secretary Bird photo!
Beautiful bird!
Thanks Tony!

Thanks for the scary bird pictures, Sentient Biped. Some call out for captions.

Oh wow! How wonderful! So many new posts here.

Your yard sounds wonderful Sentient - a real treat for the birds.

Ruth - that's a great cartoon - and if they keep cutting down the trees to build roads - that's exactly what it will look like.

Sentient - cool picture from Birdzilla. Nice.

Crocoduck is great Joan - thanks. People just don't understand evolution - you are right.
