Very good job, Bits.

Hey! There's Karston and David and Muhs-Apo and the whole gang! Breeding season so they're all making nestling spammers.

"First squadron, you are cleared for takeoff!"

Even gulls love line-dancing.

well baaaad me - 2 weeks and I haven't thanked any of you for all of your comments! Thanks Norrel, not1word, dianne, geomancer, Guy, steve, and especially brianmoc, who I know loves all gulls so dearly, not just Spamgulls!

I've looked them up in my bird book, and found that these are Chorus Gulls, dancing to the tune of 'My Contest! My Contest!'

And Norrel, I fear perhaps it is perhaps one of these flighty Chorus Gulls who may be responsible for yet another Marriage on the Rocks!

Jean Gregory Evans on March 29, 2009

Wonderful chorus line! Well done!


M Teixeira on March 31, 2009

Well done!!

Bits-n-Pieces on April 1, 2009

Thanks Jean and Miguel - Jean, I goofed: I didn't follow your advice, and there are more than three, so they won't soar too high :D

And now it's April Fool's Day - Believe it or not, the actual Official First Birthday of The Contest. So I guess these guys soon will be taking off for their next bombing runs!

Wow! They're so uniform! How do they remember which one is Bob and which one is Graham and which one is Susan?

I'm so glad I'm human.

Ben Steiner on April 22, 2009

Funny.. I was going to make a joke about how they are all lined up ready for take off.. awaiting clearance from the tower. Then I saw that n1w beat me to it! Great shot though!


Ahmet Bekir on May 6, 2009
