Out on a resupply mission for our teenager who is now living in Camrose.
Within 60m of posted coords, I knew there were big problems. Read giant guard birds the size of 747's. Yep, when I got to the coords I could see an obvious depression in the ground about a meter from one of the pterodactyls. My "Nice birdie, go away" was met with a cocked neck and a loud hiss. Then the thing went back to sleep while its mate stood up in attack mode. We baled.
Took teenager fishing and a coupla hours later returned to the death zone. Rotten birds were still lying there but at least they had moved a few meters. I told teenager that no bird was going to keep me from a cap. He refused to get out of the car this time lest I get killed by the swans or arrested for harassing them.
Ever try reading the #'s off a bashed up cap covered in two inches of muck with 2 swans hissing at you?
Thanks for the cap, OFTH, and thanks for the bird watching opportunity.
