Utterly random book meme

Courtesy of (un)relaxeddad, the devil:

  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
  2. Open the book to page 123
  3. Find the 5th sentence
  4. Post the next three sentences
  5. Tag 5 people

I looked on page 123 and found a beautiful reproduction of a preliminary sketch for The Last Supper (click here to see the final product in all its 16 glorious billion pixels). Anyway, the sketch does have some sentences written on it, but sadly, my 15th century Italian skills are a tad rusty.

So, I picked up the NEXT closest book with 123 pages, looked at page 123, and found the fifth sentence after which I came upon this:

Like many shorebirds and blackbirds, the pipit forages almost exclusively in damp areas on the ground.  The best way to identify this drab dresser is to watch its tail – if you are looking at an American Pippit, its tail will bob rhythmically.  Similar species: Savannah Sparrow (p.129) has yellow lores and light legs and is stockier overall.

Ever since Christmas, we have been waiting for some hungry winged visitors to take advantage of this:


And now that they have arrived, we need to know who they are, so we keep this very handy:
