So far today, in my neighborhood, I've seen a peacock, phoebe, hummingbird, mockingbird and a falcon. It's been a beautiful day.

We have quite a few here.


Blue Jays








Wild Turkeys

More that I can't think of at the moment. Pigeons and ducks too. A couple of different kinds of Hawks also.

We got giant parrots flying all over the place over here. It's like birds you would see in some cartoon.

It's been interesting to make a list---slows me down a bit to let me appreciate my surroundings as I peruse my recent memory.

Robin, cardinal, sparrow, hawk, blackbird, swallow (don't know which of the 90 species) blue jay, dove.

And of course the ubiquitous "chi-chi" bird. 

The latter a generic term used by the guy I used to dove hunt with when I was younger to designate any bird that was not a dove.

Kookaburras, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos (both white and black), galahs, wattle birds, butcher birds, bell birds, finches, honey eaters, lyrebirds, and all manner of common-or-garden varieties.

But we don't got no emus.

I've heard Australia has some of the most beautiful birds, Didge. No squirrels but beautiful birdies. Please tell Yosey that I said hi, miss her all the time. Have a lovely Easter, Didge.

Yes we do. They're very pretty. We're not big on song birds, though. Some -- like the parrots -- only squawk. And I'll be sure to pass that to Yosey next time I write. Happy Easter to you, too.

I always thought kookaburras was a cool name for a bird. I just like saying that word. Have a good day, Tris.

Thanks, I love their 'laugh'. It's much more pleasant than curlews! They almost sound like a child screaming.
You too have a good day, Dragonfly
