Bird Walk

While enjoying the late afternoon sun at Carlsbad State Beach today, I came across an unusual sight, a man walking his pet bird. Actually, it was a husband and wife walking their dog and pet bird. How often do you see that? Thinking that I wouldn’t get another opportunity too see something like this, I quickly snapped a picture with my iPhone and posted it on Brightkite.

As they walked away, I was a little upset at myself for not having my dslr with me to take a better picture. I brought the camera but left it in the car thinking I wasn’t going to see anything worth photographing that I haven’t taken at the beach already. Lucky for me, the couple turned around and headed back in my direction. When I saw this, I rushed back to my car to get the dslr. The owners were nice enough to allow me to take a few snapshots of their beautiful and well trained bird.

  • Nice shots Edwin. You should have asked for the bird to sit on the Domain Pirate, @jacobburke's Shoulder…would have been perfect.

  • I was an idiot and forgot to ask if the bird would sit on the dog. That would've been a good picture!

  • LOL!!!

  • LOL!!! Of course Drew would manage to find a way to incorporate my pirate life into this 🙂
