I think the bird did the great escape, or he missed.

I wish he had escaped...I didn't copy the picture or download it, just pointed the link at their URL, which is apparently very temporary.

We have 3M film with a bronze tint installed -- makes the windows like a mirror from the outside during the day. The silly cardinal attacks his mirror image, slamming into the window over and over and over and over again. We've tried covering the window with netting and various other tricks, but he just moves to different windows. It's been going on for months. We can hear him allover the house. In a recent issue of Newsweek magazine, a women who had been anti-gun all her life endured a cardinal in the same manner for about 3 years, then went out and bought a rifle and shot it. Then, she cried -- but was free of the thumping. We're not at that point, yet...especially since we live in an Audobon community in which the discharge of a firearm is illegal -- and because our neighbor is only 20' away and I'm liable to shoot everything but the cardinal.

Picture was taken from inside.

Don it's a territorial thing, Bird sees an image of itself, so attacks it. Or it's trying to mate with itself
Gee your worried about that little thing, you should try a Kookaburra, that dam thing laughs only when you least expect, usually because it knows you did something wrong and it bursts out laughing so the whole neighborhood knows about it then the others start up and the song becomes a chorus from one block to the next.
it's a funny as can be they make me laugh every time they fire up.
Guns are banned out right down here, automatics illegal and a permit is required for a single shot gun, Its a good thing ,as to how these weapons can destroy lives in a few moments, when in the wrong hands.
Tasmania was the first to implement this after one nut went and shot 36 people in one day down at Port Arthur Tasmania not your Port Arthur.
It went national because of crime where the use of the gun became too big an issue so the government paid millions of dollars to buy back the guns for a safer community.
I know you have strong representation towards the keeping of fire arms from organized gun groups and the right to bear arms, but when one looks at the murders the kids at school doing the copycat thing, then gun control must be taken seriously to restrict them in unauthorized hands. Hard call I know but a start is a start, and a life has value, but what is the value of one single shell! That causes so much pain and grief towards others especially with the innocence of a child life being taken

Whew...Richard...you better be careful, buddy. Comments like that to a primarily American audience can turn this nice Sprinter forum into a "pro-gun and anti-gun " debating chatroom.

Yanks generally fall into two categories...they either love guns or hate them. The latter group would sound a bit like you; the former would say they have a constitutional right to "keep and bear arms." I guess there are people that stand somewhere in the middle, but I haven't met many.

Perhaps, for the purpose of keeping this rather chummy and peaceful group of Sprinter owners speaking to each other, we could just say "each to his or her own" and let it go at that.

I make a motion: Let's not start writing about guns.

Either that, or I'm just gonna sit back and watch the fireworks!

John

hello John
sometimes a letter can be viewed in as many different ways as to how it was originally intended.
On-line moderation to a motivators thread two comments
One..... Oh Great wise one, who sees the vision beyond.
Two.....Dude, that's totally rad (And I mean that, in a totally non-sarcastic way)
There is no flair but an honest comment with thought the greatest gift the world has to day in a free and democratic society is 'freedom of speech'

Nah...not trying to stifle debate, Richard. I've noticed that in our Sprinter Forum we voluntarily exclude certain subject...porn, Liverwurst, porn, the English occupation of Ireland, porn, potty-mouth words, and last...Australian snakes (I added that recently after having nightmares about the pic you posted . But then, I asked for it, didn't I?)

Oh yeah, one more thing:

"Peace can only be found through mediation, not guns."

My reply is a USA newspaper headline circa 1942, "JAP INVASION FORCE STEAMING SOUTH, THOUGHT TO BE BOUND FOR AUSTRALIA!"

I envision a subsequent headline from an Aussie newspaper, "THREE-MAN MEDIATION TEAM LEAVES SYDNEY IN ROWBOAT; HOPES TO HEAD OFF JAP INVASION FORCE"

I totally agree with Old Master and heartily apologize for obliquely raising the gun issue -- it was just in the spirit of the old lady finally snapping.

I have too many friends on this forum to want to know their views on guns, religion, politics -- or porn , and it would be better if they did not know mine.
