Mr. Forster would be appalled.


It's time once again for the Bill of the Birds Caption Contest. Send me your clever caption for the image above and you'll be entered in a competition to win an overwhelmingly wonderful prize.

Deadline for entries is Sunday, April 5. I will announce a winner on Monday, April 6. The prize is an autographed copy of The Young Birder's Guide. Un-autographed copies of this best-selling field guide sell for $15. Autographed, it's worth about half that...but hey! It's FREE!

Good luck! Keep looking up (and don't forget to close your mouth when you do.)

Lieutenant, open the rear cargo bay doors - we've got quite a load to get rid of here if take-off is to go smoothly!

BTW, my word verification is also applicable: proshoot. I'm not kidding.

"Hey mom, do I look like the karate kid off that cool movie now!" I can't wait to see this bird's wax on wax off photos:)

I didn't notice the wonderful thing going on at the rear of the bird! Here is one more caption that is derived from the movie Karate Kid-

"Mr. Miyagi, I found out that I could paint the fence twice as fast by I using the paint spraying contraption on my rear there!"

I have been unable to come up with a clever comment, but I cast my vote for "sharted" as the best new word of the year.

Great timing with this photo, Bill.
