    cannot resist these longtails; this one dragged ashore at Palai, Phuket and hasn't had any attention for a while. 'One day' I'd like to get a smaller one and restore it as a very long-term project. There was another one overturned and partially buried in the sand at the same site.

    Question? Because I donít follow birds as much as others and would like to know from others in the know,ÖÖI took the picture of what I thought (and still do) was a male humming bird, Monday afternoon (in Florida).

    Now Gipsy says it might be a female Nectarinia jugularis (Sunbird). I am not sure, but I did look it up on the net and I donít think we have Nectarinia jugularis in North America. The Nectarinia jugularis lives in Asia (and other places) and has a curved beak.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunbird

    The sunbirds have counterparts in two very distantly related groups: the hummingbirds of the Americas

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hummingbird

    Hummingbirds are found natively in the Americas, from southern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, including the Caribbean.

    I figured it was a male (beautiful plumage) because we all know the better looking sex in the animal world is the male.

    Is the blurred picture I took of a Hummingbird or Sunbird?

    Sorry, I assumed you took those photo's in Thailand...my mistake. The pics being either 'blurry'/small subject, I mistook the bird for a female sunbird.

    Having no reference material or knowledge of the (humming-) birds of North American birds, I found a few sites on the net. Please have look and see whether you can find the bird.

    Identification Birds of north America: eNature: FieldGuides: Birds
    The different species of hummingbirds of North America: Species
    The different species for each state in North America: Species by State/Province
    There's quite a few of them: Hummers of the World

    Another site with many pics: Hummingbird Index
    and another one: Hummingbird: Operation RubyThroat, the hummingbird project

    Any ornithologist (specialised in North American birds) here?

    They are nice !
    Have repaired and built 13 of them after the Tsunami- The one in the pic should be able to be fixed for about 35,000 baht- with help from the Sea Gypsies at Rawai .
    11 hp Yanmar - single cylinder diesel banger with longtail drive would be in the region of another 25,000 baht.
    Of course you have to make sure it is actually abandoned before you start

    Can get smaller ones up near Taplamu that need reworking for about 12- 15,000 baht.
    Rebuild costs are about 18,000 baht and the engine need only be a 9 hp - with drive system about 20,000 baht.
    Gimme a shout if you decide to realise your dream !!!
    I got all the contacts down south in Phuket !

    Maybe a Ruby-throated hummingbird (found in the eastern Ĺ of the United States, Florida being one of the states)

    After viewing several of the sites you posted I think I have found her here (bottom picture):

    The males have a ruby throat, the females donít.

    Thank you.

    That's exactly the area that my inlaws are from / in. You and I might have crossed paths at one time. Those boats really are special. It would be interesting if you could take them and restore them.

    Standard 762.
    The manufacturer doesn't exist any more.
    Went out of business in 1989.
    Have tried a Lancaster mag, but that falls out if you knock the gun.
    Bit like early SA 80.
    Falling asleep and waking up is not the same as passing out and coming to.

    Hi - thanks for offer, it's on my list of things to do. But first, we leave for Sa Kaeo then Trat for 6mths next week, back here ideally round October, all going well.
    The 'smaller ones' - this one also at Parlai - at the end of the road past zoo by he restaurants. it looks abandoned to me, but maybe too far gone. Something this size would be suitable, GF thinks it would be a nice step up from the kayak (but I thin k the exercise does her good)
    How does one 'prove ownership'?

    except losers may do more than weep; given i'd have to moor it back among the locally owned ones (things burn!) it'd pay to be on good terms right from day one.
