Thank you! They are so likable, wish our season was longer. They will head out soon.

Haha, those are great Sandy!
You've managed to add personality in your captures and captions to a bird who already has a ton of personality. And I'll never complain about someone who can add a smile to my face :)

Thank you Jeff, Cheryl, Ian, Dan, Al and Steve! It's always fun to see humor all around us on a daily basis. I love to see everyone else's funny interpretations, and it's fun to contribute once in a while too!

Thanks John, Craig and Peter! He was quite comical. He also swayed side to side, even though he didn't appear to be defending his territory.
