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.
