Sometimes the kids need a break., a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr. Not sure what the sign is for. Do you really drop of your parents?

FOOD FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

FOOD FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr. When we were in New Zealand in 2009 we went on a pelagic trip, a fancy name for taking a boat out into the ocean to see sea birds.

They put a bait ball bull of fish bits over the stern of the boat and albatross and other birds came in.
Occasionally they were very aggressive.
The bird on the right has a 10 foot wing span.

Thrush

Thrush, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr. When I was a young fella there was a brand of mufflers named Thrush.
They were desined to be fairly loud and rumbly.

Considering how melodious thrushes are I don't understand the muffler name.
You can hear the wood thrush here.

Home Inspector, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr. Mike Holmes would be proud.

For those of you who don't know the reference, Mike Holmes has a show on HGTV called Holmes on Homes.

Rusty Mackaw

Rusty Mackaw, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr. The Mackaws of Rondeau like pine cones and grass seeds on occasion.
This one turned up in our yard and I was able to get a shot of one eating a pine cone.


I think the propane delivery guy is playing a trick on us. I like his sense of humour.
