Birds are good for that. I wonder if they do it on purpose?

Haha. I always wonder if you base your limerick on the photo, or the photo on the limerick. Another good one, and the bird is cute in a funny looking kind of way.

Have a happy 4th!

I almost fell out of my chair when the page opened to that big BIRD staring at me! But your limerick was even funnier!

OMG......this is so funny and I unfortunately have to admit that I was graciously used as a potty by one of our avian friends at the beach not long ago. I am not sure what is funnier, your limerick or that bird! Thanks for sharing. (Voted Up) -Rose
