Thread subject: Interesting fish delivery at Dyfi
||06/27/11 05:11 am
||A strange fish brought in by the male - it certainly caused some confusion! - Link :)

||That is absolutely riveting Anne ! What more can I say? Another to add to the favourites list. Awesome!

||Wow, that was spectacular! The *dance* she does around that thing is hilarious! I could just see the speech bubbles over their heads:
Monty: Hi honey, I'm home
Nora: What is THAT?!
N: I told you to get the ____, what IS that?
M: It was on sale, just try it
N: EEWWWWW, ick, no!!
M: What's wrong?
N: Take it back, the kids won't like it.
M: There's nothing wrong with it, just try it
N: No, take it back, NOW!
M: Sheesh. Picky, picky, picky...
Thanks, Anne, that was great

||Fantastic! Great dialogue there Shelley ;-)

||What a great story! I've never seen a gar except in crossword puzzles, where they are quite popular. Great video, and I don't blame mom for being super cautious. Wonder what she'd do with a Moray Eel?
||06/27/11 01:49 pm
||Loved the video and the dialogue both! :-)

||Aw Shelley, your reminding me of some of the conversations Betty had with Dennis when he didn't put the furniture in the right place, or the fish wasn't big enough:-)
||06/27/11 08:57 pm
||Hehe, I could practically *hear* the whole thing!
And am I the only one who thinks that mouth of that Gar looks suspiciously like a beak of, say, a heron or some other long-beaked bird? Yikes!
||06/29/11 04:16 am
||Yes that was a priceless bit of footage Anne. Made me laugh too when Monty went to take it away, she lunged for it and a tug o war ensued :) You just couldn't make it up could you? :)
||06/29/11 05:18 pm
||Nice dialogue Shelley! lol
It's a weird looking fish that's for sure - I like the way 03 stood on its beak (which does look like a heron's and I'm sure is what was causing the upset - I think she was afraid it might attack her chicks). I laughed when I saw the male was eating it from tail to head and when I saw the head still intact in the nest later. I guess it's pretty boney up that end, and it's not exactly fat the rest of the way down.
There's another couple of clips on their youtube channel today - one of an intruder and another with beautiful close ups of the male. I think he's around five and I noticed his eyes still look orange. What age do they start to turn more yellowy? Youtube page here - Link
I read the other day that they're hoping to have live streaming from this nest next year, which is great news :)
