    Settle down, Biff. Let's not jump to conclusions. 2 questions:

    1) Did it walk like a duck?
    2) Did it quack like a duck?

    It's an iridescence, so it would look more green in some lights and angles and less green in others. It is a domestic mallard breed called a Swedish Cayuga. Must be an escapee or something.

    More bird talk. I took this photo with my iphone through my binoculars in Coasta Rica last January It is obviously a bit blurry but it came out pretty well. Over the course of an hour we watch this Collared Aricari, and Keel Billed Toucan and Chestnut mandibled toucan fight over the fruit in this tree. We were in the garden at our little bed and breakfast near Arenal National Park. Anyone else been birding in central America?

    My dad has been a number of times. We have an entire hallway at my parents' house dedicated to his bird shots. He loved Costa Rica. He just got back from Brazil a couple of months ago too.

    Never been to Brazil, but one day I hope. The humming birds down there are amazing.

    Birdy, can I have a pet hummingbird? Seems like that'd be pretty awesome.

    I think one of the only pictures of a bird I've ever taken was in Brazil.

    I might be illegal to keep a humming bird as a pet. It would certainly be a lot of work and, at the risk of completely derailing the thread again, your two adorable kitties would definitely try to kill it. You could however get a humming bird feeder to hang up outside a window and then your could watch them all day long.

    I'm not sure that I could attract hummingbirds to my back deck

    What about roadrunners, they're pretty cool. I always enjoyed seeing roadrunners when I lived in Arizona. On the other end of the cartoon spectrum, I'm no woodpecker fan. Those things like to hack away at and near the Bungalow.
    Runs with deer.

    You'd be surprised where they'll show up.

    Suspected Mallard x Canada Goose hybrid reported in New Jersey. Weird.

    Interesting factoid about road runners: they are actually a type of large, fast, ground Cuckoo.

    some cool birds in Mexico. See green parrot thingys in trees lots of white skinny swans around the pond cool orange ducks and there's a fella in my neighborhood who walks his dog with a big ass parrot on his shoulder almost every night. If he doesn't be a pirate for dia de los muertos I'm gonna be sad. Unless he's David S. Parrots instead.
