    Good Omen?

    some might think this makes no sense or is just stupid but today when i drove by JTS i saw a cardinal sitting on the shoulder of the statue of Jack Trice.

    that cant mean anything bad but is it good?

    It's better than the aftermath of having a pigeon sitting on his shoulder.

    That would make a great picture


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    That would depend upon whether there is white stuff all over the shouder after the bird left. That sign may indicate more of the same as our past. If no bad stuff on the shoulder , maybe things will be better ahead.
    It is your duty to do a closer inspection and report your findings to the waiting CF'ers. Good luck on your assigned duties!!

    Can't be bad, but it would've been better if a mini-cyclone came by and whisked the cardinal away. THAT would've made a cool picture!

    If there was a dead hawk laying at the feet of the statue then I would really get excited.

    Re: Good Omen?

    Do you mean a hawk fan all dressed up in his gear or the bird?

    It depends. Did the cardinal have teeth inside its beak and arms with hands for wings? If so this could be a good thing... If not then it was probably just a bird perched on a statue.

    Would it be too much to ask for both?

    Re: Good Omen?

    There was also an injured deer (broken leg) that ran through JTS today. This was not a good omen.

    I'm not sure if it is a good omen or not. I think the only logical conclusion to draw from this is that the cardinal was tired of flying and need to rest.
