    Voting for the birds and the bees was as natural as the birds and the bees!

    A little bird told me what to vote for.

    I thought of striking up "The Bird is the Word" to introduce the alternatives, but then I just let them bee:

    I get this thief on my "small bird" feeder at times. A red-bellied woodpecker.

    And these are the ducks I mentioned in the entry thread. As I look at Muscovy's again, these have the "bits" on top of the beak, so still possible they're a hybrid since I can't find a match.

    This one totally freaks me out. (And not in a good way...)

    ..... I think I may have reported to him a number of years ago.

    I had the camera out on my patio with a wireless remote and clicked whenever there was something interesting.

    The birds do it, the bees do it and so do I. Voting, that is.

    so many excellent entries! It's a very hard choice this time.
    Some pics would be perfect for a caption game. Doesn't the dove look like she'd say "do you still want your sandwich or can I have it?"
    And the shoebill is definitely flirting :D
