All 17-plus minutes on yutoob.... Cool

Hmmm I didn`t last more than a minute (oh err) - THX KBB, I now see what you were on about - Fortunately I don`t think I will have the earworm from this. Liked the retro kit - I am playing mine sans front skin at the mo and I reckon it is the best it has sounded overall in ages..

For its day, it was the first serious head-banging music I think most of us teenagers listened to. Big Grin

(You should have stuck with it awhile longer, as there were some great solos further on....)
Total chill-out song...I love it! Probably even better with some sort of chemical embellishment.

Btw, "In a Gadda Da Vida" = In the Garden of Eden Smile

Dig it, man...
Oh wow! Inna Gadda Da Vida was one of my first introductions to *real* rock music. I had no chemical embellishment at the time - my Jr. High friend and I did not imbibe then. I still loved it, especially the drum solos. They were just warming me up for Bubba and his solos, I think. Wink
Owls in the backyard every night this week.
A flock of sparrows has taken up residence in the hedge in the backyard. I scare the bejeezus out of them every morning when I walk out of the back door.

Took a walk across the meadow this morning to take some pics for my new website. Hubby took this picture of some birdies on the barbwire.
Aren't they cute? Any idea what they are?

Not a clue. I didn't see them (I went the other way into the meadow) until we came home and looked at the pics. I can't blow up the photo enough to get a real good look at them. My birdie book didn't help either. I'm guessing they're maybe 7-9 inches long.....and cute.....not a great description Rolleyes
I'm guessing either Northern Shrike or Loggerhead Shrike. Leaning towards Northern because of the white belly. Ask hubby if they a hook-tipped bill.They may look cute, but the reason they're sitting on that fence is because they impale their prey: small rodents, lizards, even other birds, on barbed wire or thorns. Ouch!

Ooooh! We have a lot of birds here that are pretty intense in their hunting ways. I looked up the shrikes in my book. You could be right. It also compared their looks to Northern Mockingbirds. They look a bit like them too. Hubby didn't see their beaks that well. The camera he used has a pretty long lens.....
