Now here's something you don't see every day...

What happens when a birder lays out some seal meat on his stomach?



Apologies to those who've seen this before, but it was just brought to my attention over the weekend. This is Bruce Mactavish, an avid field birder from St. John's, Newfoundland with a gorgeous Ivory Gull perched on him. He is a regional editor for North American Birds and is a birding tour leader for WINGS.

Unfortunately, I think this would have a much slimmer chance of working in NJ. ;) As one who has seen this before, no apologies necessary: it always makes me smile when I think of it.

Yikes, if I did that in my backyard I'll probably be mauled by a bear or attacked by a Cooper's hawk!

Very pretty bird, but I have to ask:
Why is he using bins to look at it? I mean, it's right there!
