Re: The Birds II

I was referring to the bird behind the car tire. It's marked like the guineas we have around here. Looks too small to be a turkey. Where'd the chicken come from in your close-up? I can't find it in the big picture.

Re: The Birds

The one under the car looks a lot like a guinea from here.

[In the immortal words of Robert Young, it could well be. - Dave]

Look at that staircase stringer!

Not a single knot in the entire length. The quality of wood has certainly deteriorated over the years!

I give up

Perhaps it's my aging eyes but I can't seem to find a third bird.

[There are actually four -- two turkeys, a pelican and the radiator cap hood ornament. - Dave]

Oh.

Knew I would find them after I expressed my frustration. I won't give it away if others want to play the game.

Duh.

What birds where?

I may regret this later if I FIND THEM, BUT I SEE NO BIRDS AND RESENT WASTING MY TIME LOOKING FOR THEM, WHEN I COULD BE ADMIRING THE ARCHITECTURE AND THE MAGNIFICENT COMPOSITION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH!

Sorry to yell, but I accidentaqlly hit the capslock in my enthusiasm.

Please circle the bords for us dummies!i

Car ID

Hudson

Shim, shim ... more shims

Looks as if every part of this structure is being shimmed up and re-shimmed.

Never-ending battle with gravity.

Third Bird

The hood ornament/radiator cap?

Look closely

There is a third bird.

Gobble?

Turkeys, aren't they?

The Birds

Well, a couple of them, anyway.

The Birds

What are they, exactly? The one on the far right has nice striped plumage, maybe black and white. A Lady Amherst pheasant? We sold their feathers in the fly tying section of the sporting goods store I used to work in.
