My internet service provider didn't post one of my comments, so I'll repeat it:

I like the drinking parrot.  Made me smile.

I'l also say I like the owl pictures, as well as most of the bird pictures.  

The colorful gang of birds on the ground are cool as well.

The Betty Botter twister's not hard for me to say like the thistle thistlers' daughter.

booklover, thanks for the Betty Botter comment.

Dominic, you have created your paradise! Great life.

How wonderful Dominic that you care for birds. Thanks for sharing your story.

Comment by Dominic Florio on January 15, 2013 at 8:29pm

I grew up in Queens NY, in the suburbs, and walking out into our mostly cement backyard one day, I found a gorgeous dead bird.  My dad and I looked it up and I always remember that it was a scarlet tanager. Now I live in FL on an acre and one half and one morning I had the thrill of seeing a pair interacting and flying back and forth. 

Recently, at a bird sale, there were threee pair of Madarine ducks for sale and I was just about to buy at least a pair, when i was told they were already sold.  I keep many birds and they are a species I've always wanted.

Thanks, Steph. I thought so, and looked like the photos on birding site, just wasn't sure. Thanks for the info. Really appreciate it.

Tony I just love that bird (parakeet) drinking from the straw - I also love the mother owl with chick photo. Lovely!
