Helpful Tips When Watching Wildlife

I spend a lot of times outdoors. When cruising about I find it's helpful to have a field guide to identify different species. My bird book has come in handy many times fr identifying such exotic species as robins, pigeons and blue jays. After I've shot them. My mammal guide came in handy just the other day when my Dad and I went hiking and ran over a bobcat.

OK, we didn't really run over a bobcat, but we did see one on the road for a split second before it vanished into a swamp.

But if you click here, you'll find one of the more useful field guides I, as a straight male, have ever stumbled across

I'd venture a guess that you are already an expert in that field.

So, just like with the birds, do you have to shoot them before you can properly identify them?

Now that's my kind of field guide.

And, how the hell did you hit a bobcat, that is a pretty large piece or machinery.

Also helpful is the article on "Some of you aren't doing your job".

From purely a textiles point of view, I like the metallic and wildcat print bikinis, but think the ruffled ones are a bit too frou-frou. I think of lettuce. Do you really want to think of lettuce when you're looking at bikinis?!

That's a SWEET guide - way better than my NYC guide, too!

another thing to do is, while you're driving past the animal at 60 mph, announce the animal's presence to all in the car. however, instead of excitingly yelling about it, quietly whisper the announcement to save from startling the poor creature as you streak by.

I wonder why I had a general idea of what that was a guide to even before I clicked the link.

What a pig! :-P

Tell us Limpy, what do you use as bait to attract this "wildlife"?

Nonny, every girl I knew in high school would dispute that.

Eclectic, it's really the only way you can get them to pose like that. Just ask Audobon.

Zoe, I'm not sure you're getting the whole picture here...

Maggie, exactly what are you implying young lady?

Syd, I knew you'd appreciate it.

Alkelda, no I don't want to think of lettuce when looking at a bikini, but thanks to you, I now might.

Rat, I'll be in NYC this week. If I see anything that looks similar, I'll send them your way.

DW, right up there with mooing at cows as one drives by them.

Nick, because you've been here more than twice?

Pixie, that was pretty good.

Little Sister, no, I am far from qualified. I just stare a lot. It's really kind of creepy.

BP, did you just say "man meat"??? Holy crap!!

Rat, tell me about it. I'm in shock.

Tysgirl, cash. What else?
