-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

Agree with everything, and have to add for the sake of my pet peeve-ness, they're Wigeons (no d in there).

Actually, if you look hard enough, you'll find Wigeon spelled Widgeon. Basically, it depends on how old your source is, and how they were feeling that day (or how many d's they had in the shop :P ).

EDIT: In response to BarnSwallow:

Thanks! I don't even see them every year; but this year they nested somewhere on the property and I got lots of great looks when the fledglings/juveniles were out bumbling around. :) Would be really cool to have one overwinter.

Nice pics, Cobal!
