The cat & owls pix is funny Patricia.  Reminds me of a "which one of these is different?" questions.

Tony, those parakeets and the oil! stunning!  
Patricia, what a great photo of oils and kitten. They must be growing up together. I hope they are kind to each other.

Snowy Owl looks like it is laughing Tony. How cute.

I love your other picture too. How wonderful.

Thanks for the song link Joan.

I hope everyone is doing good today.

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.
