Oh yeah, the parrots! Apparently there is a flock of monk parakeets here in
I have also seen them in Norwalk, CT. It is the strangest thing to see these
large green birds with their hugh nests sitting up in a fir tree in New England.
They are, apparently quite loud in the daytime. There are several towns
in CT where they have colonies. Milford is one place that comes to mind.
I am moving to Florida in the next few months. I can not wait to see what
kind of critters will be in my yard. I sure am glad to hear that the turkeys are already down there. Whew! I was really worried about this.
Earle, you are so right! Those silly turkeys should be heading for the bushes
instead of parading along the sidewalks right before Thanksgiving.
Speaking of critters eating pet food. I leave snacks out for my neighbors kitties.
I usually remember to bring the food in before dark. Last night the biggest,
fluffy, racoon was out there delicately picking up each morsel of Meow Mix.
The racoons generally nest in a big tree in my neighbors yard and have 2 or 3 kids. The other branch of the same tree hosts the screech owl family of 7 or 8.
All the neighbors gather to see the baby owls learning how to fly.
We coexist with nature in our neighborhoods even in the cities and towns. It's
kind of nice.
