I'm pretty sure #4 is a roadrunner, and #5 is a great egret. Both are found in the Mesquite, NV area where Wolf Creek is located.
Bird shmird, at least the fact that they are both found in Mesquite just is further, circumstantial, evidence that the Sphinx, and inscriptions are genuine.
Besides, we really do not know what roadrunners and ducks looked like back then. I do agree that the Duck may look more like an Egret. The first bird may certainly be a Roadrunner (good eyes Sam - you would make a fine Mesquitologist).
Again, it just further supports my interpretation.
The Road Runner is elusive, like birdies on the course. The Egret symbolizes regret. So, I may have been inaccurate about a duck in the bag. If it is an Egret, it could be interpreted as a regret you did have more balls in the bag. That seems more directed to me..hmmmm
As an aside, do you ever get tired of following me around in the threads correcting me? hmmmm? Dandelion my b----
