We got a new one again, they must be migrating but this guy (gal?) let me walk right up to it and didn't even flinch, rare for these birds so I was impressed. It almost said "here, get my good side".
If it’s attractive and vividly colored it’s a male. If it’s bland as dirt it’s female.
We’ve been fighting science and the natural world long before Trump.
But in the natural world the male satin bowerbird is the one into home decoration. This one even improves the ecosystem as well, by collecting plastic bottlecaps and straws....
Among humans, a woman may talk a husband into mowing the lawn or adding a patio on out back the house, but sometimes it's an arm and a leg to get them to spring for a nice rock garden space or freestanding flowerbeds: "Just stuff to mow around is all that is."
Also in the animal kingdom it’s the males who are the good dancers (to attract a mate).
Humans: “So you like to dress with garish style, enjoy home decorating and landscaping, and are a good dancer? What are you, some kind of homo?”
Hah, you and I are getting good at derailing threads, I have to say. They'll be calling us to star in a new revival of the Gong Show pretty soon.
Who still knows this thread is Photo of the Day?!
(my apologies for my part of this derailment anyway)
