Suuuuuure he does! Just like the driver of the boat on an albatross-spotting tour we took in Kaikoura in New Zealand. MASSIVE wandering albatross swooped down and landed near the boat and starts paddling over, I'm leaning over the side tapping on the boat's hull to encourage him closer, the driver is wondering if he needs to get the first aid kit out because my fingers to an albatross resembling nothing more than a tasty snack of sardines! The albatross got to within about two metres of the boat when the same thought finally dawned on me too (see previous about dumb tourists!) ... YIKES that is a BIG BEAK!!

And here's a picture

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

How FUN are these pictures?! COOOL! I think you and your fingers are quite brave. That albatross is absolutely regal. They're 15-20 pounds, right? And his expression is quite fierce! Wait, where have I seen that before...???

Oh, yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

The Rb has invaded my mind again and is forcing me to channel his efforts at a new internet empire. Maybe all this talk about beaks has made him feel insecure.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

All the better to BITE you with!!

Uh oh it seems I may have inadvertently given the Rb a serious case of PBE (Psittacine Beak Envy) ... who knows what unexplored territory this may lead to ...

Oh, geeez, yeah, remember the whole thing when the roosters got to bragging about their feet? For once, I'll let the Rival have the last word.

It seems there was a debate among the roosters as to the quality of their 'feets'.

For me, they'll always just be the last thing you see before your eyes get gouged.
