Strange Condor Roosts in Our Fiction Stacks
A rather strange condor has roosted in the adult fiction stacks at my Library.

We don't usually see such a large winged too-big-to-be-my-dinner critter. Come to think of it, I wonder if that's a condor, after all. Let's check one of our encyclopedic databases, Britannica Image Quest.
Must be a different type than the one atop our fiction stacks. The head coloring is different. There's also something really familiar about our giant winged-dinner-of-prey.

NOW I've placed her! That's no winged dinner! That's Boss Lady. But what's she doing walking across the tops of the shelves? I don't see a nest, so she's not waiting for chicksoons. Maybe it's some type of performance-enhancing exercise that librarians do at staff in-service training. That's when the photo was taken (February 18, 2013). I remember there were staff breakout sessions for specific topics--none of which involved any special din-dins for moi, I might note in passing.

I included four photos just to annoy my colleagues.
I hope Boss Lady dusted while she was perched up there. Shelf tops can get really dusty after seven years.
