Peregrine at full-tilt, even the claws are aerodynamically tucked.

Those are giant noise makers and game birds in TN, but protected in FL.

Dark clouds over the Ft. Pierce inlet last night. View attachment 154483
I din' know that, nick. But it makes sense: this is where they nest. I cannot see how they can be a game bird... What I mean is, these big things walk right up to you.

You got a cracker? Hold it out. Chomp.

Wood bees! Yeah, my sister's house had these bungle-bee lookin' things that make holes. She found out just spraying bee killer won't do from nothin'. Ya got spray dust in the holes to kill the grubs, too.

We have a regular woodpecker pair right outside our window. They show up several times a day. And either one of them gets immediate priority at the bird feeder -- no matter what kind or how many others are there.

Woodpeckies are a tad like Slo-Poke Gonzalez (Speedy's brother) in the cartoons:

"He no worry about de poosycat; he carry a gun!" BOOM goes Sylvester.

My mom just met and had a conversation with her a month or so ago. Said she's really down to earth.
Some guys had seen Gilda Radner topless at the local swimming hole. Long before cell cameras so can't be verified.
