I hear I get 10 woody Kits of my choosing from Ray at Skybench - for free! All right. Woot, woot, woot. Thanks Ray!
Now now, let's not put it all off on Ray. I find it better to share the load by putting Darth Womack on the spot.

I had my money on Jeff nabbing 10,000. Well done SV!

Spent the afternoon reading a book and gazing at different bird migrations here, a number of species on the move. had a lot of cormorants thermalling into the west too. They and the kites and eagles made a good study.

Speaking of eagles, I just checked on the Decorah, Iowa eagles. It looks like they're getting their flight feathers now. They've grown a LOT in the last few weeks.

Hi Don

I'am looking at the same link you posted last year, it has a bunny,s nose in the avatar next to the live shot of the Eagles so i'am not sure what year it is.

If you go to the Eagles facebook page it looks like it is running just fine, do not know how you would tell ?

I believe it's the same URL but this is what I'm using :

http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles

They're starting to exercise their flight muscles now. This is going to be fun to watch (again).

Hi Lac

Just looking at the big little guy walking like Charlie Chaplin, but he was doing little wheel stands with his feet getting about 3" in the air with each wing flap.

Just amazing how much they have grown in the last week, and getting their new dark feathers too.

First time with Ultra Cote

Hi gang! I need some input as to Ultra Cote:
I see on one color, that the data seemed to have a date of manufacture stamp, and another had oracote light as the product- the T violet seemed a bit thicker than T Yellow and Red. Is this normal? I do love the way it behaves! updates @ Crimson

Captain C: The trans violet might be a minutely amount thicker but I'm pretty sure it's all lighter than say Monocote. OraCote is the Euro name for Ultra-Cote. I've never used the T red. Pretty much white, red, T-blue, violet and yellow. We have a T-red Ultracote covered Carl Goldberg Zipper sitting around and it's light as a feather so doubt there is any appreciable difference.

It is wonderful to work with. A little more stretchy than Monocote but a whole lot easier to apply. Real (read 20 years ago) Monocote probably added more structural strength but since all you bozos are slamming carbon fiber on everything anyway it's a trade off...................

Edit: Ultracote works really well on solid sheeted surfaces too. Doesn't develop and trap gas under it on balsa, obeechi and such like MC does.

Which reminds me, apology to GDon is in order. Your stuff is in the front seat of my truck and will go out USPS Priority tomorrow. Sorry Don, long hard, rough last two weeks and I didn't have time to travel to civilization due to work. You'll see it this week.

Way cool PJ3! We have a lot of them around here. When I lived on the water I had a couple of them named and they hung around for a few years. One was Jerry Lee and the other was Elvis. When you walked out on the dock they would come flying in and land next to you and patiently (often impatiently) wait to get fed. Wife and would throw some lines out and catch Croakers and other stuff and feed JL and E for hours. They'd get their wing loading up so high that when they took off skimming the waves for a few hundred feet was all they could do. One time my Mother in law was here and I'd catch a fish, hand it to her and she would in turn feed the guys. I caught a little Croaker, wasn't more than 4" long and handed it to her. She looked at it and threw it back in the water saying that it was to small to feed the guys. Both Herons started screeching their heads off..............literally cussing her out in bird talk. I told her "bad move lady!". After that they wouldn't go near her. Moral of the story: Heron's scrutinize character very closely...............and my MIL was found lacking.

Reminds me of the Great Seagull Riot of 2001. I'll tell it later.
