Geocache Description:


When we last spoke with the twin birds, Bob (GC2A0D7) and Bobbi Sue (GC2CYY6), they mentioned that their uncle Robert the Bird has a humble abode/castle not too far in the same area. They say he’s a bit strange however. For example, he likes the colour black. He’s a black bird, living in an all black house (interior and exterior) without windows, which is good camouflage at night, but not so good in the winter.

He believes himself to be a descendant of the French aristocracy, and therefore prefers to be called Robert le Oiseau (pronounced Row-Bear leh Wa-Zo). Row-Bear doesn’t like to fly as he is apparently afraid of heights, but he does love to take long walks in the woods. The fact that he has not been caught by predators is a big mystery to his family.

Now the twins tell us that he likes to entertain visitors and has some goodies to trade. He is away a lot on account of his walking habits, and when he’s gone, he locks his house with a big padlock (black, of course). When we tried to visit the other day, he was absent, and with the big lock on the door we could not get in. But he says that if you can get in, you are welcome to the goodies, and you have to sign his guest book (a.k.a. the log book).

To log a visit, you must sign the guest book.

Spotting Row-Bear’s castle should be easy, after a short bushwhack off a well-used trail. (Just don’t go at night, or wait for winter.) The use of tools to enter the house is prohibited. As a gesture of good will, he has left a Starbuck's Card as a gift to his first visitor(s).

Happy hunting (for the bird house, not the bird)!
