The most photogenic bird in New York since the Central Park Mandarin Duck ... the Bryant Park American Woodcock.

Bryant Park is the large green space in Midtown Manhattan just behind the Library. I shot these on my lunch hour today. It was his lunch hour also! (They eat worms.)





Why did the woodcock cross the road?





I'm told they are migrating, resting here briefly and will continue on north.  :)

Christopher's post in the movies I've watched this week topic about renting dvds reminded me of this article a few weeks back.

https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2019/03/theres-only-one-surviving-blockbuster-left-on-planet-earth/

Related: the New York Times ran a story about what is now the last extant Blockbuster store ... in Bend, Oregon.

I watched three movies yesterday (I didn't have to go to work), and it struck me as being funny that I watched one of those movies on a rented DVD from a video store, one from Netflix, and the other was on VHS. I never had laserdisc but maybe I oughta hunt down a player for that. :D

You still have a store that rents DVDs ... and  a VHS player that works! :D

I have a laserdisc player. (No guarantee it still works.) And a bunch of laserdiscs ... Clint, mostly.

Can anyone shed any light on this project?

I don't know, but I'd speculate it is a documentary about a person who makes "art" from wood using a chainsaw ... as opposed to one about a soulful and creative chainsaw killer.

Maybe something like her: https://www.mybluprint.com/article/meet-griffon-ramsey-chainsaw-artist-and-believer-in-magic

A proper visit to the Grand Canyon is a bucket list item for sure.

For me too ... if only I weren't scared of heights! :o

Those are great shots, Matt! 8)

You're IT next time, Matt!

Thanks for playing, guys! I'll leave you with this image of Clint, Mollie B and Charlie Parker's instrument (or a relative anyway):

As a former member of the brass section (not woodwinds which Saxophone falls under), it is the trumpet.  And what AKA may not know is that KC is an accomplished trumpeter!

I don't know about "accomplished" ... but Matt is correct! :D

I was so pleasantly surprised to see that scene start off with a woman playing the trumpet. It was a rare thing way back in my day and I don't think it's too common even in our enlightened era!

AKA, if Charlie Parker played the trumpet, that is news to me. His friend Dizzy Gillespie was a great jazz trumpeter, though.

11
Is it the saxophone?

#13: No.

(I think Matt may have it! :) )

12
Is it the saxophone/some kind of musical instrument?

You can't ask two questions at once! :knuppel2:

13
Well, what objects do you need in a scene like that for what happens there to happen? ???

14
Ah, now you're getting warm!

#12: Yes!

15
They must be off closely reading the fine print of that thread ... :D

16
Ohhhh, how'd I flip that around in my brain?

Same way I flipped around Yes and No when answering the Breadbox Question! ;D

17
Okay, maybe we need a hint.  :-\

There is a post relating to the particular scene somewhere in the "Reviews and features in the media" thread.

19
Is it in the scene at Laton's mansion?

Oops, didn't see this before my last post.

#11: No.

20
Do you guys need a hint? :)

AKA, the question was "Is it bigger than a breadbox," and my final answer was YES! (I mistyped when I said No.)
