Between Sea and Sky - seagulls are getting some bad press ... ps Swans can be some Badass birds also .. approach with caution = do not approach ..

The Swans at Prospect park had babies recently and they were damn cute. They are just going to grow up to be asshole adult swans though. There is also a great Blue Heron nesting on the end at prospect park in Brooklyn that's as big as a tetradactyl.

↳ Jherweg @7:17
Herons are a cautious breed, but a great sight is to see one standing perhaps 2 feet away from geezers fishing along canals in A'dam. They know the geezers are just sporting and so will get a present if there is any action..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22am

morning. drake should do a swan or goose song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23am

↳ Jherweg @7:17
I am so glad to hear that some of the babies are growing up! There was one brood of swans in Prospect Park that I think either all died or all but one. :-(((
Avatar 7:24am

Prospect park is amazing for wild life , lots of turtles!
Listener Robert:

The swans in Hudson Park, New Rochelle in the 20th Century were friendly as compared to the geese. Maybe it was the salt water.

More herons of different species than ever on the East End of Long Island this year, but curiously far fewer swans than in a typical summer.

the hummingbirds like the flowers on the morning glory bush outside the house

The Cavalier is a great recommendation! May I add that there are also a lot of Cavapoos (Cavalier/Poodle mixes) out there, and one of them might also be a perfect choice?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am

↳ P-90 @8:14
Agreed! Cavapoos are very sweet and funny, they have the best of both those breeds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18am

had a large population of hummingbird moths this year at the bee bomb. and the rose of sharon must be nice and juicy this year as it's full of bees going elbows deep into the flower.
