Bird Toon of the Day - August 5, 2015

Note: Dan redid this panel, in color, on January 31, 2017. I'm including it here.

(He's also available for adoption!)

  • SHARE this voting request via email / Facebook / Twitter / your other social networks, and ask your contacts to vote and to share too!  Email if you would like suggested wording.    

The contest runs from Monday, August 3, 2015, 9 am PT to Friday, August 7, 2015, 9 am PT.  ONE vote per person, please. Thank you for considering!
