Sporadic Musings about Birds and Birding on both Sides of the Atlantic
The scene: sweet
Please send me a wheatear. Ok, thanks, bye.
What do you mean "Send a Wheatear"?!?I JUST FREAKING SEND YOU A FREAKING BLACK KITE!!!! Do you have any idea how difficult it was to find a bird of prey - nah - any bird of anything to fly across the Atlantic with that darned volcanic cloud all over the place!?How am I supposed to contact it now?? Send it back? Now that it's almost there?For a freaking Wheatear!?!Well, for freak's sake, I suppose that's what the man meant when he said that what we got here is failure to communicate?Some men you just can't reach?!?No, man, no way. I guess you'll just have to be happy about a little-tiny-forking-first-for-North-America Black Kite!!Well, it'll be awfully bleached and abraded by volcanic ash once it reaches Queens, so if you spot some strange Red-tail or TV, ...Look, man, you're not going to overlook and not find it, right?You'll be able to identify it, right?A freaking Wheatear?!?The man's utterly crazy!!!
