FIRST ROBIN OF THE YEAR IS SPOTTED!

EXUBERANT BACK YARD BIRD WATCHER SEES FIRST EVER SPOTTED ROBIN, CAUSING BIRD EXPERTS TO FLOCK TO THE BRIDGEPORT

BRIDGEPORT

This photo was taken with a Sam's Club
disposable 35mm camera with a one time
only telephoto lens by Herbie Bell
of Bridgeport.
Professor Datese  Anuff of the Rare Bird Sanctuary in Nester, Wyoming is on his way to  Bridgeport to confirm the sighting of the rarest of the rare birds in North American, the Spotted Robin.  The Spotted Robin spotted in Bridgeport may be one of only three of the birds known to exist.

Early this morning Herbie Bell, 63, of Bridgeport was looking out his kitchen window hoping to see the first robin of the Spring. As he was about to give up, a flutter of wings caught his eye and a bird with the familiar orange breast of a robin landed not 30 feet from his window.
Upon closer look through a telescope, he saw the spots of the Spotted Robin and knew he had not only spotted a robin, but he had spotted a Spotted Robin!  Bell used a one time only Sam's Club 35mm camera, and the disposable telephoto lens that came with it, to capture the photo shown in this story. He then notified local bird watchers, who in turn contacted Professor Anuff.

Professor Datese Anuff, shown here with
his pet Cockatoo, is on his way to see
the Spotted Robin.
As word of the sighting spread, neighbors and early morning joggers alike began flocking to Bell's home in hopes of spotting the Spotted Robin.  OFF THE WALL has set up camp in a tree house next door and will report any new sightings as they happen.
