Welcome to the Earth Day edition of Mutual of J-TWO-O's Wild Kingdom!
Today's episode features photographs of birds the teenager and I spotted while on Sanibel Island (I took all the photos), which is a bird- and shell-lovers' paradise.
And now may I direct your attention to --
Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! it's a plane!
(Actually it was a bird, specifically a brown pelican. Although it looked amazingly like a pterodactyl.)
Meanwhile, back on the beach....
What you talkin' 'bout, Willets?
Now look at the sky. Now back to me. I'm under an osprey.
Question: So is a bird in the sand...
worth two in the bush?
(Okay, yes, technically, it was a tree. Work with me, people.)
My only egret?
That I could not stay longer on Sanibel Island.
