Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

This baby Crossbill was sitting on my rafter jig when I came up with the chainsaw. I got this picture and then called the boys over but they came a runnin' and the bird could fly. Later I almost stepped on it because it is so well camouflaged. Tried to get it to step up on my finger but it would just hop over. The dog at the job site did not seem to see the bird from less than 10 feet away. Birdy hung around most of the afternoon but was always a surprise because it blended so well with the gravels.
By the way: I don't usually make rafter cuts with a chainsaw. I consider it very crude and I like decent fits in all joints. In this case none of the other saws could complete the compound angled cut
