RE: Bird watching thread
A few years back, whilst working overseas, I was walking along the waterfront on my way to work. Sitting on a railing was what I can only describe as a seagull on steroids - a bloody huge, mean looking thing.

I mentioned this behemoth to the guys at work, who told me that I was lucky to have seen it, as the "seagull" was, in fact, an Albatross.

RE: Bird watching thread
Here are a couple of photos that I took with my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 10) within the last month. The location is Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Ireland. The bird is a European Robin, aka Redbreast. Apparently, they are one of the only birds to stay in Ireland during the winter, and their song is beloved by the Irish people.

To see one up close like I did is considered to be a sign of good fortune. I heard this particular bird chirping when he was down in the brush. When I located him, he flew up on the rope and chirped while I took a picture of him.
