Hi Jan, having a laugh here, thanks.

That sure looks like him Ippa.

He probably did Conrad, might've backfired this time though. Thanks.

Hey Mich, thanks bud, anything left of the town?

Cool idea Dann, can I skipper the flagship?


not1word on December 6, 2008

Of course it's not a crow. Anyone with half an eye can see that it's a pelican. Great shot, Guy.

someGuyinmasset on December 6, 2008

But of course! I just didn't recognize it without it's Pelican Briefs.

Oh, now I know why you are all laughing at me! Ha-ha (blush)!~ OK, so it's a nice blackbird! Learn somethin new evry day, eh?

not1word on December 7, 2008

I had to keep looking at it, but finally I see that it's a stork.

Norrel on December 7, 2008

I don't agree, not1word. A stork has long legs, and delivers babies. I suggest it's a peacock.

Bits-n-Pieces on December 8, 2008

norrel a peacock's a good guess. But, even though I don't have any legs, I think not1word's perhaps correct! Good thing there's lots of back-up practicing in the bullpen there in Masset, too! :D

someGuyinmasset on December 8, 2008

But stoneboat, we laugh about you in general, you can't pin it on one thing.

not1word,norrel, and B-n-P, you're all wrong of course, but it does deliver babies.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on December 8, 2008

Nope! you're all wrong, its a storkipeligull, an endangered species, lives only on fish n' chips!!

kamalyn on December 8, 2008

LOL, Jim - And SPAM, of course!

someGuyinmasset on December 8, 2008

'n mushed peas!

Jessica G. on December 8, 2008

Oh, poor birds!!!

diannemcd on December 8, 2008

Cant believe the views...wow. You may say this bird spoilt your sunset, absolutely not, I think this is one of the best sunsets, how lucky were you to get that bird just there when you were, absolutely a winner. Dianne. (Keep an eye on Gnarles
