About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Certainly the male is full of colours but why has you splattered that magnificent Elephant with paint?

      Hehe. That’s a painting by Leroy Neiman. That’s his style. I sometimes think the Painted Bunting looks like it was painted by Mr. Neiman. πŸ™‚

    The first time I saw picture of one of these birds I thought it was a hoax! Still not seen one in the feather – wrong part of the world!

      Oh yeah, I don’t blame you at all. It’s got some pretty improbable plumage. Shey and I are looking at birds others have posted, feeling jealous, and saying the same thing as you. Wrong part of the world! Time to build up those flyer miles. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for visiting, Stewart!

    its a lovely species of bird and one that cant fail to attract the eye of even the most un-educate budding ornithologist. Love the Elephant too.
