Return of Giant Things

Friday, March 10, 2006
It is with great joy that I announce the return of Giant Things to Bill of the Birds.

Today's entry comes from our birding friend Jack Cole, from California, a well-traveled birder with an eye for interesting digital pictures. Recently, Jack was in Maine, looking for his life purple sandpiper (still waiting to know if you got the "purp", Jack.) and he found this giant thing, a lobster claw.

Jack wrote of this encounter:
There were giant lobsters EVERYWHERE! This one had to be the biggest however, since the rest of it was apparently buried underground!--Jack

Thanks Jack! Imagine the size of the container of drawn butter that goes with this lobster! It might nudge my bad cholesterol number into four digits!
