Picture of a bird on a log I took yesterday. My knowledge of birds can be written in large letters on a gum wrapper, with plenty of space left over - so I have no idea about what it is.

By golly, Bob, you're right! I've captured the most unusual bird in Texas - these things can actually whistle jazz like 'Trane, Parker, Jimmy Smith and Miles. In fact the term, "Log Jam", comes from those rarest of times when four or five of these cats assemble on the coolest log in the pond and really cut loose.
