Today is the first time in a long time I have had a Lapa (Red Scarlet Macaw) come visit my Almendra tree. It was such a pleasure to watch him. He was alone. They usually are in pairs. I'm not sure which one this one is but around here, there is an odd number in the flock. They usually wake me with their squawking but I don't mind. They make me smile everytime I see them pass overhead. And to see one in my tree!? That's a gift.
Today I was responding to a comment on a past post about my own personal animal planet outside my house.
Here's that past post: http://yo-yoinparadise.blogspot.com/2009/05/animal-planet-at-my-house.html
As I was typing, this Lapa showed up in that same tree as mentioned in that post.
Funny how things happen.
