Monday




The sky is ablaze with color when these beautiful Red Scarlet Macaws pass overhead. We call them Lapas here and now they are feeding on the Alamendra (almond) trees. When they pass over my house, I try to count them but their numbers have increased and now there are more than twenty. They usually flock in pairs but for years, there has been an odd one that flies with the group. You can always hear them coming or figure out their location by their squawking. It's a great sound, especially when the Toucans chime in. I have found paradise.

I appreciate those readers who have hung-in with my YO-YO blog even when I didn't post anything for weeks at a time. Thanks everyone. If I can't write, at least I'll post a pic for you!!
