    • Rick,
      Every time I look at that, I still can’t believe those are real birds. They look to me like something that escaped from the Disney Studios Experimental Division!

      (We don’t have any species quite so colorful in my neck of the woods…)

      A pleasure to see your name here. I hope all is super-groovy with you and yours!
