"....The truth is out there."

-- Dr. Jerome Jackson, 2002 (... & Agent Fox Mulder)

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

-- Hamlet

"All truth passes through 3 stages: First it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

-- Arthur Schopenhauer

-- 'cuz, It's the Law --

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Following up a bit on Arthur C. Clarke's 3 laws I came across these additional precepts that might eventually impinge upon the Ivory-bill saga ;-) :

Sturgeon's Revelation: "90% of everything is crap."

Hanlon's Razor: "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity."

Hofstadter's Law: "It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law."
[ you may need to be familiar with Douglas Hofstadter's writings to fully appreciate this one ]

and finally, Sosensky's 3rd Law of Birding: "Woodpeckers and creepers spend more time on the far side of the trunk."

which reminds me, if you've never perused them before, the "Universal Laws of Birding" can be found here:

Elsewhere on the Web:

Out California-way, all three of Momma Owl's eggs hatched and nestlings appear to be doing well, making more regular appearances from beneath Mom's underside. I believe their names are Fuzzy, Wuzzy, and Scuzzy (...uhh, but Scuzzy prefers to be addressed as Sir Bartholomew):

And if you're into cranes, as a lot of birders are, I hope you caught this post last week at the "pinesabovesnow" blog:

...all for now.
