Mirth on the Bough

Donald Duck deals with anger management issues in Self Control (1938)

It seems like there is a Bird celebration every few months. For instance, today is National Bird Day. Well, I see nothing wrong with considering the wonders of our feathered friends, appreciating their songs, colors, and grace in flight.

Last year, I didn't do much birdwatching. Hopefully, I'll get an opportunity sometime this year. I live fairly close to the Madrona Marsh, which is an awesome place to spot some cool critters.

Maybe next year I'll have photos of actual birds, rather than cartoon ducks. ;-)

Let's look at a few vids:

Woody Woodpecker in "Barber of Seville" (1944)

Daffy Duck in "To Duck or Not to Duck" (1943)

Angry Birds in "Wreck the Halls" (2011)

Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds (1963)
