Wow. You are just like me, as I was 30 years ago! Once a friend & I found a freshly dead cormorant on the beach and we took it back to her place & dissected it on her kitchen floor to see why it died! lol (On plastic trash bags covered with newspaper = easy cleanup). btw, it choked on a snapper blue stuck in it's throat.
Some folks don't get it, but i think it's cool - can't wait to hear more!
