How wonderful Dominic that you care for birds. Thanks for sharing your story.

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.

Joan, that tongue twister is a tough one for me to say.

Comment by Tony Carroll on January 15, 2013 at 4:24am

Now, this one made me laugh!

Comment by Tony Carroll on January 15, 2013 at 4:22am

Not sure what they are. I think they are Ibis, just not sure. If someone knows, will really appreciate it. Thanks.
