Aaaaaaaaaahahahahaha! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I love the french fry birds!

If my hardrive hadn't crashed I'd post up a bunch more of my favorite "french fry" birds! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

PS - you're not mad at me Awe for calling that one a french fry bird are you? Well, I hope not but it was a french fry bird!! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

'Course not, even though it was a Belding's Savannah Sparrow and the only way it gets french fries is if you bring Micky D's to the wetlands. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/monkey.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/monkey.gif" alt="" />

Does McDonald's sell McFishTaco's yet?

We got some natural beauty too.

They could be. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Not a bird but part of Nature, nice little Campbell River summer run Steelhead I caught mid-day a few years back.
Made one cast just on a whim and bingo......there she was.
