Re: Nesting behavior of the Ozone Warbler

Postby Frank Colver » Fri Jul 07, 2017 11:20 am

I can't figure out any reason anyone would fly a paraglider if they can drive to the launch and landing zones. I've even seen hang gliders on top of some pretty small cars that probably wouldn't hold a paraglider and its associated equipment.

The only advantage I see to a paraglider is the ability to hike in or out of some difficult access areas. Anything else is hang glider country.

Is there any rational reason to fly paragliders, instead of hang gliders, at Torrey? Please inform me if there is.

There is a reason not to - they take up more useable sky space per pilot. :x

Flying the Lazy boy recliner chair
Torrey Pines light wind days, although I consider it to be more dangerous, I often fly a Paraglider,
Bucking for airspace, flying anything may put you on the beach, into a mid-Air collision, the cliff or dead
The Paragliding crowd will literally clog the air up, squeezing everyone else out

On high wind days, a Hang gliding is awesomely better. I can easily just peel away.
The lighter days, ya know, If It's kinda light and you might go to the beach,
Which glider seems to be more manageable in a light wind, crowded condition
On a light day, Lazy seems to win regardless ,...

~ Which glider would you want to carry up that cliff ~

My choice in mountains flying has always been a Hang Glider,..
For the non existing collapse factor and for the
obvious bird like soaring performance

Clacking, kicking and snapping, an Ozone Warbler struggles to escape a novice taxidermist who has snared it.
"Okay," the novice shouts down to the master taxidermist below, "I got a rope around it. Now whadda I do?"
"Pull it toward you until you can grab it by the ankle."
"I don't think it likes me..." says the novice taxidermist nervously.
"Of course it doesn't like you," retorts the master taxidermist. "You're a taxidermist!"

High in a tree, a novice taxidermists searches the nest of an Ozone Warbler for an egg.
"Nope. No egg here," he shouts down to the master taxidermist below.
"Forget the egg," yells the master taxidermist. "Just lower the creature down so we can stuff it and pluck it and mount it."
"I can't," replies the novice.
"Why not?" asks the master taxidermist in exasperation.
"It's asleep."

Cooks from the Ucser Erif North Korean restaurant arrive to search the nest of an Ozone Warbler for an egg, only to find that taxidermists with a boom truck have captured the creature.
"I give you 50 dollar!" says a cook to a stony-faced taxidermist holding a bottle of barbeque sauce.

Taxidermists use a ladder truck to pull an Ozone Warbler, clacking and snapping, from a tree where it had made a nest.
    Unfortunately, no egg was found.

High in a birch, a novice taxidermist snares an Ozone Warbler.
Suddenly awakened from its slumber - in the midst, no doubt, of a peaceful dream of attracting a mate and then, perhaps, the arrival of an egg - the creature begins struggling with the snare, snapping and clacking angrily.
"I got it! I got it!" yells the novice, excitedly.
"Good," shouts the master taxidermist from below. "Now grab it by its ankle and drag it down here so we can pluck it and stuff it and mount it."
The novice hesitates.
"But I don't think it likes me..." he says, worriedly.
"Of course it doesn't like you," shouts the master taxidermist in exasperation. "You're a taxidermist!"

"In this rare photograph, supplied to us by a wildlife photographer, an Ozone Warbler is shown at the moment of nesting," says a professor from the university. "Also provided was an audio clip of the bloodcurdling nesting cry of the creature."
Unfortunately, no egg was found.
