Is this gull identifiable? At Ohkay Owingeh Fishing Lakes, near Espanola, northern New Mexico, Oct. 27. 2012. Bonaparte's Gull would be unusual but not enough for a rare-bird alert.


(And how do I get these images to show up? It's telling me "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.")

Cowboy Bean is coming this way!

He's sharp as needle and bright as a dollar,

Wear No. 3 shoe and a 16 collar.

He's full of vim and he's full of vigor,

fast on the draw, and quick on the trigger.

So all you bandits and thieves take warning

Or you'll be in a hospital bed by morning!

And the doc'll give you kind of a shake,

And he'll hear the rattle that the bullets make,

And he'll shake his head and he'll say "oh my"

I can't cure this and I ain't gunna try!


For Two-Gun-Freddy has plugged this guy!

Thanks to all three! And yes, it's nice to live near a pond that gets a good variety of ducks in winter.
