`Boss bird', i.e., Rob. Spotted Crow and you posted some excellent shots! (all but one of mine have been posted on EZ - like to think I'm combatting cross-board dilution - but good video stills are hard to capture...). I'm wondering if the thread might be stickied and all comments deleted. So many folks have such beautiful birds. This also makes me curious about such items as gallery and voting functionality?? P.S. Sure hope you got that raccoon!
