Take care, bob dale!

Hummingbird chirps (mostly Anas) are plainly audible in SF- they are usually drowned out by traffic except in very large parks or sheltered gardens.
Ravens are always audible, but have really been basking in the spotlight since things have quieted down. It’s a joy to watch their antics, but if they set up shop outside your window for too long you do find yourself standing near the window fondling an old boot thoughtfully.

Mocking birds are going all night long around my place, I think this is seasonal, but I’m not sure?

I saw a peacock in my neighbour’s garden - he was taking selfies to show off his expensive threads on an Internet clothing forum!

I’m kind of digging these new multi subject threads, my friends told me about the time they were out camping, they were so
High- they mistook the sounds of a peacock, for a baby crying. Years ago, my Aunt had 2 peacocks, they crap all over the place, and in large amounts, she had to get rid of them when one flew onto their new race car body and scratched the living crap out of it....Our local park has at least 10 of them- roaming around.

Neighbor taking selfie’s- ok
Neighbor on a denim forum.

I’m going with B.....final bullshit

Whilst enjoying my early morning cuppa and gazing out of the kitchen window, I noticed a flash of black and blue in the garden and heard loud cawing. There was a large, sinister looking black bird - and here’s the strange part - wearing a pair of miniature jeans. I think it was a denimcro’.

Amazing, some unknown Japanese brand? Was he wearing vintage, that would be 21 years or older....and yes
If a reproduction pant is over 21 years- it’s considered vintage.
I don’t make this shit up, I just don’t have a problem following it.

A little off topic

When you debate, what’s considered vintage, you quickly learn
That 21 years is just a bullshit benchmark. Most likely this 21 year
Rule was cooked up by a dealer, a way to get more money for his product,
If you can tack the word vintage onto it. With that said, it simply works, and is the
Industry standard.

I remind my almost 20 year old daughter- she’s almost vintage😜


Consider this a portal to the SUFU conners thread. 👁👁👁

keep bullshiting yourself- if that makes you feel better.
🎈🏈

Oh- how contests go south

If there was such a thing as a softness scale- this would be the softest, you can see hummingbirds
collecting spider webs for their nests, I was trimming the bushes a few years ago and found this.
Im still working on what happened to the large colonies of English house sparrows, we have no shortage of crummy red tile roofs, thats what they use for  nesting. When west Nile virus, first came to California, it almost wiped out- our entire crow population, It took almost 10 years for the crow population to return...I captured a crow battle in our oak tree today, I put it up on IG


The nest
