    Wow, how beautiful!!! The best kind of critter I've ever had come into my yard was a stinkin' possum. Sheesh.

    My sister-in-law, who lives in central California, recently had a foreign exchange student from Austria stay with her for several months. One day the girl came running in to the room where my SIL was, excitedly demanding that she come see this beautiful bird. It was the most beautiful bird she had ever seen, she was very excited about it. My SIL went to see what she was raving about and discovered a common blue jay. It really hit home how often we take some things for granted.

    I love the bird pictures but would be scared to death of the snakes...but spiders are my very biggest fear. I'd pick up a non-poisen type of snake in a heartbeat before tackling a spider of any size. YIKES

    My cat is terrified of my bird! I don't have any problems keeping the cat away from the bird. He yells "scat" and she does! LOL

The white ones love to have a party in my orange and mandarin trees.
    Yep, the black cockatoos are here mostly and sometimes we get yellow crested white ones but more often corellas and Major Mitchells.

    and they're plenty good at chasing away the outside cats.

    Good thing we don't have parrots as we about go broke in the winter months feeding our feathered friends as it is.
    I saw my first cardinal when I visited relatives in Maine in 1982.I had never known of their existence until then and could not get a decent picture,although I tried hard.I think they are beautiful,delicate little things.I'm quite fascinated with the delicacy of humming birds as well.

    @ woody. I have always wondered what your avatar was. Now I know! Thanks
