Is it possible the subject matter gentleman participates in the NVMS forum as he has learned the skill of blatantly bringing up a topic that has nothing to do with the subject under discussion (birds).

Eh slowkneenuh?

I was inspired by the book and magician threads. And I really dig birds. Your news link just made me sad. It's kinda what you just did.

Magnus, my poor attempt at sarcasm was directed at the politician, "Rep. Warren Groen (R-Rochester) also opposed the bill by making a bizarre reference to abortion.". It was he to whom I was referring to as the subject matter gentleman that must participate in the NVMS forum as he has learned the skill of blatantly bringing up a topic that has nothing to do with the subject under discussion (birds), and I was not referring to the OP. I sincerely hope you didn't think I was referring to you Magnus. I thought the politician must post on the NVMS thread because he was so adept at changing the pertinent discussion, as he did by using an abortion reference in discussing a bill, promoted by young students no less, to address proposed legislation on a bird. We all know how threads in this forum can be hijacked for personal platforms. I apologize to you for any misunderstanding I created, my poor sentence structure, and also for hijacking your thread which had been pleasant until my post.

Thanks for clarifying. I was not sure what you meant.

More birds, people. And pictures. Pictures are great.

That's also Michigan's state bird

Here in MN it's the Loon. But ask any Minnesotan and they will inform you that it's the Mosquito.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Where I grew up in South Africa, I always thought the Kingfisher had extraordinarily beautiful colors.

Yep here in Wisconsin it's the American Robin. Actually a pretty lame choice ( voted on by schoolchildren apparently) considering the diversity of birds we have around here. I found a dead robin on my patio just last Saturday. Only the second dead bird I've found around my feeders in the past eight years. Hopefully I won't find anymore anytime soon.

One great thing about the American Robin is its binomial name: turdus migratorius. (Suppress little boy giggle.)

I like the robin. It's common, like most of us.

They do. We have Belted Kingfishers, but they pale in comparison to those African beauties.
