Then we’ll go with a bat door. Narrow doors keep out non-bats.

Then back to bird doors, this time towards the top of Mt. Lemmon near Tucson. These are high-altitude doors. Looks like someone graffiti-ed it. 🙂

This guy may be little but he looks…intent? Ticked off? Determined? Whatever word you choose, he looks like he’s got more than a bit of attitude. The tie-in to Becky’s challenge is that I’m looking up at the bird and perhaps he thinks I’m an upstart for taking his photo! 🙂

Does this count for birds, too? Stretch those wings!

Little photo bombing snowy egret in the background.

Photo bombing again, but in aggressive cormorant black. Doesn’t the middle pelican look as if it has its proverbial hands on proverbial hips in annoyance?

It’s also Pearl Harbor Day here in the U.S. as well as my mom’s and good friend’s birthdays. Can you imagine living in California and having your birthday on Pearl Harbor Day? Not the best birthday my mom ever had!
