Colors are not true but maybe an Eastern Phoebe
So I looked up eastern phoebe:
I continued looking and found that they've recently been sighted in Canada and California, but not many and not around here. But unless someone wants to give me a CONVINCING other choice, I'm saying I got a pic of the current rarest bird in Indiana.
|This is the lame-legged mama.|
We also saw the first chipmunk I've seen in the woods so far, got smacked in the face by a miller (the little moth, not the beer), and then we got another excellent example of why Purdue is a good school if you are mentally-challenged to start (because you will be when you're done. Imagine if you will a group of thick brush bushes on the side of a flowing stream. Imagine an old, not in good shape tree nestled in the middle of them. Imagine Purdue, who owns the wood, decides to cut out all the brush EVERYWHERE along the trail, including this one grouping by the stream. Without the living brush to hold things together, what do you suppose happens to the not-in-good-shape tree, which they left in place, all alone?
NOTE: I wanted to find a picture linking "Purdue" and "stupidity" (thinking it couldn't be THAT hard), but all I got was various Purdue sports teams and their coaches (makes sense), along with a smattering of bikini clad Purdue "girls of the Big Ten" contestants, and, curiously enough, a handful of scenes involving the University of Michigan (insert your U of M joke here).
Before I go (or am assassinated by terrorists from IPFW), I have a couple of other photos to share with you.
