I’ve always been an amateur nature photographer. Years before everyone clutched a professional grade camera in their pocket or purse, I carried a small Kodak camera everywhere I went. I have always maintained that you just never know when you’re gonna walk up on something that you want to capture “on film.”
And boy oh boy did I ever score in that regard last week, at a Sacramento coffee shop, no less. I got glimpse of a MAGA Bird! Well, honestly, I am not sure what species we’re looking at here…
but this one was most assuredly a male, and I got much more than a glimpse. This big guy was enjoying a meal that consisted of an iced latte. Who knew that MAGA Birds were so discerning about their morning coffee??
And boy oh boy do they ever like to display that plumage, especially that yellow (belly) and that scarlet crown of theirs! If you’ve not seen one up close, they are certainly a sight to behold.
And boy oh boy do they ever have a distinctive song! It may have been more of a mating call, actually, but if so he was certainly barking up the wrong tree. That bird was crowing so loudly, about Nancy Pelosi, or peaches, or something that it almost made me want to throw up.
For the record, I loved the cap! I, too want to “make America great again.” America was last great when we were smart enough not to elect Donald Trump as the president of the United States. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure we get back to “great” in 2020.
But ENOUGH about politics! I don’t mean to wear out the bird analogies, but take a good gander at this MAGA…thing. If we are lucky, he will be an endangered species, or better yet, extinct, very soon!
