Hard at work ...

practicing my bird identification skills.

I think this is a ring-billed gull:

Yellow eyes with red rims, black wing tips, yellow legs, ring around the bill.

And this would be an angry swan:

With a bone stuck in his throat. No wonder he's upset!

And a bittern:

Nose in the air.

Well, I never get to see a bittern, even when other people find them right where I've just been. So I may as well make do.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
