Sparky, the Black Phoebe

 Called hawking, Black Phoebes catch insects in the air.
In their territory, they will "hawk" from one lookout post to another.
They also shadow dance for cameras.

Meet Pea and Whee

Seagull hatchlings survey their territory on a
abandoned cottage roof.

This sure isn't the Ritz.  

Don't whine.  We have an ocean view.

Come on kids, get those legs going. Up and back before dinner.

Bird's prefer red cars?

A recent study reveals birds poop more on red cars than other colors.  A spokesman for the British Trust for Ornithology poo-poohed the bird-brained theory and suggested the key to avoiding bird poop was location.  

Concerning the above car in the "red rock" color category - it's location. location. location that determines the accumulation of white matter.

Have a chuckle:

Running Route

 Geraniums cause the eyes to twirl.

Feet float past
changes in the color blue.

Sounds of sea lions mingle with scents of pelicans.

Surprises in tangerine.

Dolphins at play
Black phoebe courts his shadow.

New girl in town - Lucy sports her stuff.
