This is a post for Bonnie, in response to hers in which she reveals she’s crazy about buoys, very crazy . . . by her own admission a week ago.  Further, Bonnie’s post was in response to Tillerman.

I feel compelled to say I’m equally crazy about gulls, all kinds of gulls including eeeee

gulls . . . er, eagles.

But I don’t like dogs or

snakes.

The second foto comes thanks to Bob McLaren via Allen Baker.  Taken in the early 1960s, the fotos shows  the house of Dalzelleagle, now McAllister Brothers as seen here and here.  Previously, Allen has supplied this foto and others.    Please get in touch if you have ideas on how I can locate and  photograph any remaining Dalzell trademark eagles.   Other vessels with ornamental eagles are Huntington and Pacific.   (Use “find” to locate the ornamental eagle reference within those articles.  I’m curious about this tradition. )

The third foto shows McKinley Sea (1981,  ex-Annabelle V. Roehrig and El Oso Grande II).  And the boa, I took the foto on Coney Island after the mermaid parade in 2007.
