Sometimes I hate computers. Had a lightning strike and power surge a few days ago. The computer and software survived just fine except for McAfee. It went insane. Can't fix it. Spent hours on phone with McAfee tech. support. Finally let them fix it remotely. They said I can now reboot and and reinstall. So I did. BLUE SCREEN!!! I have to reload Windows now. Last time I let someone else touch my computer. Three computers on the network and McAfee went insane on all three at the same time. Oh well at least I am getting some shooting done.

Well they are not ducks and this is not the big blue sea, so how about some Coots bobbing on a Midwest Lake? Do they get sea sick? I wonder how furiously their little legs are paddling against the wind.

This is a Yellow Rumped Warbler. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology it is a very common bird in the Ozarks during winter, but is not a bird feeder visitor. Being winter, it is wearing it's drab winter feathers. The photo was taken on Jan. 30, 2011, a very gray day. It was taken through a window so quality is not very good but my goal was to record it. Hopefully I will get another opportunity to take a portrait of this tiny little cutie under better conditions. I have added a link to the Cornell Lab Website so you can hear it's song. Watch your volume it can be an ear piercing melody.

It has been sometime since I have driven down the flight line and there was a Saab 340 parked on the ramp with US Air Force markings. By the look of it, it seems to be a coastal or maritime surveillance aircraft. It sure has a lot of "things" hanging off of it and two bug eyes in the nose.
