Hey Steph. Yeah, it's a great site to visit. Showing all kind of birds from the Amazon basin. And dinner or a picnic would not be the same if you weren't there!

Would love to have dinner with you guys! Tony and Dallas you both live in Texas close to me.
Love the bird photo Tony! Love those beautiful Amazon birds!

Bacon. I'm with you there, Dallas. Bacon IS one of the four major food groups, don'tcha know. Along with beer, cheese, and chocolate.

Melinda, we used clovers too. Also, don't know why this reminded me of it, but we used to suck on the honeysuckle flowers. Not much nectar, if any, but they sure were sweet.

Deviled eggs. Got my moms old recipe, and it is good!

Behind your ear, Dallas. Or we could make lei's or daisy chains like when we were kids.

Comment by Tony Carroll on November 12, 2012 at 9:21pm

Yes! A potluck picnic! How wonderful (and no dishes to wash, lol).

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 12, 2012 at 9:17pm

A potluck in Peru with Amazon Birding Peru to help and find those beautiful birds. We could eat off leaves from the tropical forest, drink out of bamboo sticks, and wear flowers in our hair.

I would love, love, love to have dinner with you all so much I would be willing to (can't believe I'm gonna say this) wash the dishes! One can always dream. Anyway, another pic from the Amazon site;

Haha very funny Dallas! Nope there's a dish washing machine for that.

Wouldn't that be wonderful Dallas - all of us together having dinner.
