Tony and Steph, you both outdid your selves with these beautiful photos of birds, their lovely shapes and colors, and behaviors stretch the imagination ... even more style than can be conjured up by a supernatural power. What a great testimony of individual differences.

Tony, your photos of chaffinch, Pink headed fruit dove, Yellow Warbler, Owl in flight (doesn't look very aerodynamic, but very interesting), the eagle, and the yogi-dancing-owl amaze me.
Steph, your white winged dove conjures up memories of the lovely sounds they make. The Cat Committee watching ornithology videos delights me.
