    I love to watch them, they make my heart jump, and I love to watch their wingtip feathers and how subtly they control their flight.

       Niece and I were at the Goleta beach tonite and got to talking to a fella walking his dogs.

    He said they have a Black Ibis every year in the creek just inland a mile. Never heard of such a wee beastie, but I shall look it up...well whaddaya know, the Red Naped Ibis aka Indian Black Ibis from.....India!

    He also mentioned the White Booby that was here a few summers ago, mayb e that's the one in the Farallones now that lineatus saw.

    He and his Mrs and two dogs also saw two White Pelicans passing thru in the UCSB Lagoon recently. He reminded me of the escaped chinese fancy duck that was around for awhile as well.

    There was a Kestrel again in the tree tops and the Buffle heads and Egrets lg and sm, Black Stilts, all other manner of shorebirds, dolphins, seals, and the Kingfisher. A beautiful night.

    Some fishing, but not as frisky as the video.

    This machine kills Fascists.
