Well, if the Spotted Own Surveyor has destroyed the Owl's habitat in New Mexico. And the Rodeo Fire has destroyed a huge habitat for Spotty Owl, looks like we can take this bird off of the ESA...Right???

Now if only they would start a fire in the UN building, we can start handing out medals.

This story is a perfect example of "burning something down to make a point."

Dumb whacko environmentalist.

Hang him from the highest tree in the forest - old growth, of course.

The government is enacting all kinds of crackdowns to prevent the evil citizen from starting a fire. The government is the worst offender here.

The Mexican Spotted Owl's hoots do not sound like: who-who-who, but quién-quién-quién.

Gee?

Are all the owls dead now? That might solve the problem.

Pinging you!

Think the Mexican Spotted Owl wears a sombrero and carries a green card for proper identification?

#5 - LOL, Tad. Good one!

Hey, I want one of those cushy bird survey jobs. I'll sit on my patio with a mai-tai in hand and count all the egrets that gather there. I'll probably qualify for a nice pension, too.

I come cheap. All I need for equipment is a hose and a brush.
