  1. These are all good selections. It looks like bird watching (which is still popular) has warranted cartoons at least since mid-century. I’d have to say # 4 is the funniest (and most degrading) of them all! The very idea of this woman being picked up and carried away by the large bird here is hysterical. God only knows what she’s thinking. Hopefully she has a safe landing.
