AOTW????



Saw this on my bike ride today. It's a yellow warbler. They are sweet-looking, and their song is Sweetasweetasweetsweetsweet.

Does anybody have an album they'd like to AOTW? And I was hoping Gordonimmel would post his EOTW questions, whenever appropriate.

Wow, steen, you have beautiful birds, bright sunny days and a President who can crack jokes without being in the least bit embarrassing. I am truly jealous.

steenbeck said...

Thanks, CHris, but don't be too jealous--we had two weeks of damp, chilly soggy weather rounded out by big thunder storms. It has only just started being sunny and warm for the first time this spring.

Did you take the picture yourself?

Chris said...

Steen: we actually have a bright, blue sky here today (although it's not particularly warm) and we do have pretty birds.... No, it's the competent, articulate, witty, cool, intelligent, humane leader that I want. Does the USA want to colonise us? Please?

steenbeck said...

Heh, heh, Chris. Obama is wonderful, but there are a lot of morons in this country you wouldn't want anything to do with.

No, I didn't take the picture. Google Image, baby!

Beautiful picture Steenbeck. Do AOTW have to be something 'new' or can they be flashes from the archives, as it were? (i haven't any ideas, but thought it would be useful to know for future reference)

Ancient OR modern, Ali, anything is welcome.

AliMunday said...

Thanks DsD, will have a think.

@Steenbeck,

Didn't think anybody ever took any notice of what I said! Anyway since I said I'd do some EOTW questions, I'd better get it together, somehow.

Oh dear, now then, where do I start.......

Oooh! I'm rubbish with this computer uploading stuff.....

@ steenbeck - once more I am envious of your avian sightings. That is one beautiful warbler. Most of the birds we get around here are what bird watchers refer to as LBJs - little brown jobs.

I could do an album of the week but probably not until tomorrow - can you wait that long?

I also have three good EOTW quiz questions - so give me another week or two and I'll get there...

RE: Saw this on my bike today. It's a yellow warbler.Is the Warbler the 15 speed or the 18 speed?

shoved an album up for AOTW hope you don't mind everyone.. just in a kind of get your name right kind of post.

(if nilpferd is about.. I'm waiting for Kip Hanrahan's Tenderness.. as I have some stuff, but would like to hear a whole album - as your hospital is finished.. hint hint)

snadfrod said...

I've definitely got one album I'd like to do for sure, but am just sorting dropbox so might book next week, if possible?

nilpferd said...

Will do soon, shane, but just picked my bro up from Z├╝rich...
he brought a litre of duty free whiskey, so I think I'll skip this week.. maybe take the week after snad..
not at my most coherent at the moment.. which is incoherent at the best of times..

@ nilpferd - just noticed we missed the third anniversary of GW McLennan's untimely demise...
