Friday, October 7, 2005
It's a gloomy day here in Birdland. So, to make myself feel better, I'm posting another giant scary statue image. This time it's of a giant pirate, Cap'n Papier Mache, who stands guard over an abandoned mini-golf course in western New York. There's nothing quite so uplifting as screaming out a hearty "Aaargh!" Go ahead. Try it.

See? Now don't you just feel better? I do.

It's a fun-filled weekend. A Swinging Orangutangs gig tonight at the Blennerhassett Hotel in Parkersburg, WV. Phoebe's basketball games on Sat (much yelling and gesticulating), followed by my little sister's birthday party. Then The Big Sit on Sunday! We spent yesterday getting our home ready for The Big Sit (that's code for house cleaning that involved a backhoe and shovels.) Now we're ready and feeling great anticipation about our favorite birding event of the year.

Watch this space for some real-time results on Sunday.

Bye for now,
