Tony, I esp. love the owl in flight.  You're right Steph, it does look like a torpedo!  I like all of them.  The Cat Committee watching ornithology was really cute. ~ Melinda

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.
