    Trekkie: Mr. PICARDO!
    (Bird flies off)
    Picardo: What! What is it?

    Apparently long-term exposure to dilithium crystals leads to hair loss. Pity…

    Wow…a great outing…and a minimal donation to a great cause for 30 people to spend time birding. Sorry we missed the opportunity.

    Why do those guys all look so similar…?

    This is awesome on its face, but it’s somehow perversely more awesome that it’s all supporting characters from the less popular spinoffs.

    I am pretty sure that’s a dowitcher and not a solitary sandpiper…

      Probably a short-billed dowitcher, not a long-billed (the markings on the flanks, below the wings). But most of the time it’s truly hard to tell.
