A Liddle Riddle

Today's inspiration courtesy of the weather...

Here are two versions of a picture showing a European Oystercatcher in flight, taken on what was surely not the brightest of days about two weeks ago.

One is the original colour version, one was transformed into a black-and-white image.

Version A:

Version B:

Can you tell which is which?

In hopes for better weather over the weekend, especially in New Mexico,

Yours truly

Hi There,

Thanks for adding me to your blog reading list. I would appreciate it if you could fill in your birding profile at when you get a sec.

Happy birding,

I'll check it out next week!
Happy Birding!

I think Version B is the original. I think I can see a red bill and a hint of color in the waves.

It's a gray, cold morning here in Missouri too. We've just had our first snowfall. Yay!

Hi David!
Yepp, you're right, but what a dull and cloudy day it was...

We've also had our first snow a few days ago but it was gone the next morning. This part of the year is the more boring one as the summer birds and migrants have gone but the true winter birds haven't arrived yet.
Here's hoping for some colder weather.

How should you conduct a reverse license plate number research? I have to know whether there is any good way you can type in a license plate number on-line and see the name of the individual if it is associated with or maybe the address of that individual. Can anyone assist me? This is an The state of illinois plate with S right at the end of it. Please e-mail me if you can investigate or post if you know how you can do a absolutely free one. Thanks in advance.
