The anatomy of a bird recordist

You can't make them out in this picture but there are a pair of bins dangling around his neck too. As far as I can tell, the scowl is the single most reliable feature of the bird recordist, usually the result of either intruding background 'anthrophony' or the fact that the bird just buggered off without so much as a peep,... or chip,... or hweet,... or tack,... [ad infinitum]

PS. Rat care of Banksy; more from the UK's most gifted 'public artist' can be seen here. If you really like his stuff, the book 'Wall and Piece' is also worth a few of your hard earned Darwins.
