I had a hard time getting it to hold still for photos. It has a tail like a bird too.
Never heard of one of those; I'll have to Google it.



Yup, but ours had a MUCH longer tail. It flew like a hummingbird too.

Do birds get bald as they get older? Check out this blue jay I got on our backyard bird bath this week:

I guess they do go bald when they get old Bob. He probably has some kind of mite. That's a real good close up of him tho.

Maybe his dad was a "Mexican Hairless?"
I dunno if it is mites or not, but I would
think if it was, they would be all over the poor bird.
Great picture though.....too bad.

This one legged Osprey was on on a ranch gate far away from Chain Lakes (west of Nanton AB). It was off Secondary 553,on Flying E Road,(Range Road 148).The only water around was a small creek a few hundred feet away.

I DID NOT take this picture! Someone sent it to me, and it was too good not to share

The shop door is open and this guy stopped by to check out Garth's turnings. He reminds me of Jiminy Cricket.
