You know they’re up to no good – planning a heist or a bird-napping.

Maybe if I go behind this branch she won't notice me...

Maybe if I go behind this branch she won’t notice me…

OK. Don’t look at her.

Just be cool.

Yep. I'm the dude.

Nope. I'M the dude, dude.

Nope. I’M the dude, dude.

Need some gel.

That's better.

This darn wind...

Then there’s the just plain silly ones.   Honestly,  what’s with these bills?

    Lol! Nice thread and pics. Just like today’s Johnny Dep…….they love their make-up and disguise.

      I like him a lot, too – he was the first Swainson’s Thrush I saw this spring, and he seemed to spend a lot of time running from hiding spot to hiding spot.
