Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.

Arrrrgggghhh! A Pirate's Mate!

Several years ago I was walking through a bird preserve and had left the main area which was relatively open so the birds could fly from place to place. The path to the exit was sort of close, that is, the walkway was pretty much in the thick of the "jungle." I really didn't expect to see anymore birds. Then "Squawk!!" from just three feet to my right!! In the green jungle foliage was this awesome bird who was nice enough to pose. He was loud. And take a look at the size of that beak!! I did not want to do my parrot imitation.Parrot
