Here are four more pictures which are among my animal favorites. Click on a picture to enlarge it:

I did not recognize you straight away. I always assumed you would be much taller 🙂
My assumptions always get me in the end.
Alright, I give up, which of the five individuals pictured here did you think was me?
The first? Like a bird? – Able to cover much ground very quickly, a broader perpective than others.
The second? Like a cat? – Always lands on its feet, can see clearly in the gloom of post-modern science.
The third? Like a canine? – Can easily track things down. Loyal, courageous.
The fourth? Like a donkey? – Hard working, sure footed, can carry a heavy burden.
The fifth? – The fifth amendment? Maybe where I should have started (and stopped). 🙂
Let me see now,
Like a dead (but colorful!) bird that suicided on a window…
Like a cat who used to hide out in an underwear drawer…
Like a dog who liked eating things like a wallet (which he returned worse for wear later!) and a professor’s official file among other things…
Like a donkey (in the U.S. Virgin islands) tarted up presumably on the way to a Christmas party…
… and finally a Rasta Santa in a market place.
Faint praise indeed!
So the bird was not just pining?
And if Haile Selassie was the messiah, I really don’t get how the ‘Rasta Santa’ thing can work.
Unless it is just another excuse for a rasta party.
Over at lucias someboday asked how to calculate stats on a ratio. I recall us ( maybe it was UC) discussing this on CA back in 2007, I can’t remember how to do it and lost my Rice mathematical data analysis and stats book.
Can you help
Re: steven mosher (undefined NaN NaN:NaN),
I hate to give you an incomplete answer, but the answer depends on which statistics you are talking about and whether the numerator and denominator are independent.
I will try to take a glance at Lucia’s blog later. I am currently vacationing in Las Vegas with my wife for several days so I need to pay more attention to site-seeing with her instead of sitting in front of the computer like I do at home 😉 .
BTW, the bird is a male Blackburnian Warbler in breeding plumage. I recognized it immediately, but did check my bird book to be sure I remembered correctly.
Re: Dave Dardinger (undefined NaN NaN:NaN),
Thanks for the ID on it. I am not a birder and I was not aware of the species.
Unfortunately, it suicided on one of our large living room windows (we overlook a lake) several years ago. I particularly liked its bright colors so I photographed it.
