Alternate Solution to "Hot Hawks" Puzzle

Hey guys,

I think the "Hot Hawks" puzzle should have at least one additional solution.


This is the birds puzzle which has more gnomes than total bird-power, and you are supposed to leave out one of the birds. Rather than leave out a bird, I chose to have some of the birds carry less than their maximum weight. There is no rule saying that each bird must carry its maximum weight, and I feel that my solution is equally valid. In fact, having a bird carry no gnomes means that it is carrying infinitely less than its max weight.


Here is a link to my solution (, which I believe should be added as a possible answer to the puzzle.

What do you guys think?
