The bird is oblivious to the art he as staged here. The term 'birdbrain' should be discarded, as this one is smart enough to know where the fresh water actually is...

James said...

What a great shot! I would love to take a shot like that.

I just saw your picture of the Orange Circle. I was born and used to live not far from there. I also saw your Costa Mesa and HB pictures. I lived in both places. Lots of fond memories. I also like Old Town, Dana Pointe and San Clemente.

Darn I'm getting a bit homesick. :)

I hope you are having a great weekend!
