Beautiful Birds and City Views

I’m slowly winding down the bird photos from the park the other day, the city views were taken today while I was in a not so busy area of the park where I could play around with the CB Radio equipment that I very rarely use. Actually, it’s more fun to use than the ham radio gear. I started my radio hobby in 1979 actually, which was my senior year in High School. I have another radio being delivered in a couple of days, it’s not a CB radio, rather it’s a ten-meter radio for the ten-meter ham radio band at 28.000 to 29.900mhz. Radio and photography, great hobbies!

Who Am I?

I saw this beautiful bird in-flight just before he or she landed in the little tree. I have no idea what species this beauty is but it is so elegant when it’s flying. Do you know which species? Photographed at Floyd Lamb Park.

Don’t You Dare Include Me

This afternoon I was scanning through my Instagram account as usual. I came across a comment from a very public figure that I followed until today that insinuated that I and basically all white people are all guilty of helping to keep the racism against black people rolling. I am so offended by this person’s blatant lie.

Case in point – I went to Michigan public schools that had black students. My high school years were spent alongside young black men and women. In my neighborhood here in Las Vegas, we have a real mix of races. Black, white, and Asians all live in my neighborhood very peacefully, everyone gets along wonderfully!

Add to this the fact that I almost daily encounter very friendly black people around the city whom I treat no differently than anyone else, opening a door for him or her as an example as I do for anyone else. These people and the so-called news media in this country are a sack full of liars. Don’t you dare include me in your lies!

I was raised well by parents who have a great deal of morality in them. They taught myself and my sister to have respect for other people, period. We were not taught to hate people or treat others with violence and always be respectful both at work and while in public. Don’t you dare include me in your bullshit lies, stinking American media!

Angry Birds

These big birds were fighting a bit when I was photographing them, but I missed the really big fight, unfortunately. I am amazed at how vicious they can be, wow! I have two more videos but wow are these guys noisy! Enjoy. 😎
