It seems that I can compose the most intricately researched and profoundly stated essay on my blog and maybe one or two people may respond…maybe. But, instead, if I simply write a sentence or two and post a few pictures of birds, I get all kinds of response. So who am I to fight the trend.
Here’s a bunch of pictures of birds. Most of them hang around my back yard and the canal that runs along the far side (that’s the canal in the picture above). There are a few more birds that stop by every now and then, but they mainly live farther up the county. Still others prefer Ft. Lauderale Beach to the east about ten miles. The only thing all these birds have in common is me–I’m the one who took their pictures. If you zoom in on them to fill your screen they’ll stay in focus and won’t fly off. Oh BTW, I don’t use Twitter very much, so consider these my tweets.
On the right is an Anhinga, also known as “snake bird” because of its “snakey” neck. This bird dives for food in the canal and can stay under for quite some time. When it’s done eating it’ll spread its wings to dry. I prefer a towel.
On the left is a Limpkin. This bird, when it wants its mate, it WANTS its mate. It’ll start calling with an incredibly shrill cry that you can easily hear a mile away. Curiously, Rosemarie has learned to imitate this bird’s call.
More? You want more? No Problem!
Okay had enough? Take Flight….thanks for stopping by!
