NW Washington, today. Thanks.

Any chance these are Dunlin?

This Mew Gull isn't actually a "shore bird", but it was at the shore so fit this post.

1. Haha, bill should be a little longer on a Dunlin. These little peeps are Least Sandpipers due to the yellow legs
2. Agree with Mew, with the tiny bill and all. Cool bird & picture, gulls are underrated!

agree with GH, Parula, and Ryanl ;)

2 objective realities.

  • God is real! (Heaven and hell too)
  • God is not real! (No heaven and hell)

2 subjective decisions.

  • You believe in God!
  • You do not believe in God!

4 scenarios.

  • If God is real, the man who believes in God will be rewarded in Heaven
  • If God is not real, the man who believes in God has not lost anything.
  • If God is real, the man who does not believe in God is in trouble.
  • If God is not real, the man who does not believe in God has won nothing.
