Just went back to look at your Flamingo post! I love those birds, so comical, yet beautiful. I spent all those years in Florida, so I am used to seeing them. Just saw a gaggle in San Diego at the zoo about a week ago. We are having lovely weather, so glad you are too. Ann

Gosh I love those guys! We have the ibis at the aquarium here in Vancouver, but no flamingos. They're such funny fellows, aren't they? Hope your week is a wonderfully sunny one. :)

Diane,
When I saw your bird post, I couldn't help but smile because I love these delightful creatures. What a unique bird this first picture is. I usually just see the ordinary birds around here - the blue jay, robin.....but still, bird watching is one of my favorite things to do. What a pleasure it is to see your Florida birds.

Have a great week.

love,
~Sheri
