Young Birder's Society. All present.

Mr. Secretary, please read the minutes.

Hey, um, where's--

where's Caroline?

- She's no longer a member.

- Why?

Mostly because her heart wasn't

in birding. Is that a problem, Rob?

Yeah, well, I-- I just

wanted to be in a club--

- Get out.

- What?

This isn't a dating service.

Get the hell out of here.

I won't miss this.

So now that

we're down to three,

I don't think we're technically

a club anymore by school rules.

Young Birder's Society, all present.

Mr. Secretary, please read the minutes.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

I hereby submit the minutes from

the meeting dated 4th of March.

In new business,

Peter Nessbaum was awarded

a Golden Feather by unanimous vote...

for his sighting

of a long-tailed jaeger.

My proposition to investigate

the purchase of a hang glider

was defeated 4-1,

despite it being

an awesome idea.

Finally, Caroline Halperin

threatened to quit YBS...

if I didn't stop calling her

tufted titmouse,

and, um...

Well, she ended up quitting.

- Mr. Chairman.

- Thank you, Mr. Barsky.

- Mr. Chairman.

- Mr. Portnoy?

I move to postpone officer reports,

committee reports and special orders...

and proceed directly

to new business.

- All for?

- [ Timmy, David ] Yea.

All opposed?


The motion passes two votes to one.

Is there any new business?

- Mr. Chairman.

- The chair recognizes David Portnoy.

I spotted this on the street

this morning.

- Got a weird feeling about it.

- Let me see.

It looks like an eclipsed-plumage

white-winged scoter.

Move to mark image as inconclusive

and carry on with the meeting.

Move to

find the bird again.

The chair

recognizes himself.

Mr. Portnoy, this is

not the first time...

you've brought something

like this to the committee.
