    Good shot! I'll bet ol' James was tickled by finding such a good place to wait. Just so the bird doesn't eat him either....which reminds me of a joke. Maybe later. ;-)

    "Louie Louie, oh no

    Me gotta go

    Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said

    Louie Louie, oh baby

    Me gotta go

    Fine little girl waits for me

    Catch a ship across the sea

    Sail that ship about, all alone

    Never know if I make it home

    Three nights and days I sail the sea

    Think of girl, constantly

    On that ship, I dream she's there

    I smell the rose in her hair

    Louie Louie, oh no

    Me gotta go

    Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said

    Louie Louie, oh baby

    Me gotta go

    Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

    See Jamaica, the moon above

    It won't be long, me see me love

    Take her in my arms again

    Tell her I'll never leave again

    Let's take it on outa here now

    Let's go"

    Yet another very creative shot based on excellent research! While James waits, perhaps there's time to make one of those Japanese, Gargantuan Animal (Birdzilla in this case) vs. Humans films? You know...it’s ALL about marketing.....

    I have to look for the meaning of or·ni·thol·o·gy (ôrn-thl-j) which means the study of birds. Now I learned something new, too.Good composition, Susan!

    So clever, Susan! He does seem to be in a little danger...I guess that is why ornithology is considered such a dangerous business.

    With the help of this cooperative Whimbrel, maybe James was just looking for a new way to "get down" for use in his alternate career of pillow stuffing.
