jimbo: spotter of rare birds

Well, it's good to know I haven't forgotten everything I used to know about bird identification. Either that, or my contact lens prescription is better than the other two guys' I was with. Jimbo spotted the RARE BIRD OF THE DAY, at least it was rare for the particular area we were doing the bird count. While the red-headed woodpecker is not uncommon where I grew up in Wisconsin, apparently it hasn't been seen in years around the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center where we were birdwatching this morning. I also spotted two pileated woodpeckers and a brown creeper. Other species seen were the purple grackle, bluebird, red-tailed hawk, gold-crowned kinglet, tufted titmouse, black-capped chickadee, rufous-sided towhee, cardinals, red-bellied woodpeckers, turkey vulture and a whole bunch of others I can't recall.

Last night Chrisafer ordered, "Gurl, let's go get our dance on." So we went out to Cobalt for a few. I just can't seem to tolerate the place after a certain occupancy level is reached, so I went home by about 12:30 or so. Species spotted were the bald-headed muscledaddy, shady barcreeper, twitchy twink, ever-fuming barsmoker, adorkable shy-guy, clingy boyfriend, bottle-bleached tragedy, military nymphomaniac, cruisey vulture, flailing dancing queen and a whole bunch of others I can't recall.

Yea..."adorkable shy guy" fits me too. Is there a support group? A 12-step program?
