Michelle, "Congratulations" on your award! I don't have any pet birds but... i did capture this picture of an "Old Pelican", that looked disfigured! ;-( I was told by the Conservationist, (here in Florida) that he might of swallowed something and it might be stuck in his beak! ;-( I took the picture at the boat ramp close by, went back several times to see if I could find him but... did not!
If you check my photos, (where my Jimmy-dog photos are) you will see another picture of a "Roseate Spoonbill", a beautiful specimen. When I took the picture, I noticed he had a huge fish in it's mouth! I'm waiting for the hurricane to pass us, which...(here in Edgewater, 20 miles south of Daytona) we are just getting gusty winds and lots of rain! BLah-blah for now!
It isn't MY award. It is all of you that make this place award worthy!
Rage, I sent you an e-mail. I hope it went to the right place.
Anyway, for everyone: My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org in case anyone needs to contact me and the messaging system has gone funny or is too difficult to deal with.
Can someone help me? Do blue jays migrate? I live in So. Oregon and had a wonderful little blue jay community until about November--then they just disappeared. The sparrows and finches and the others are around (including a hawk that swoops down and grabs the birds!). I'd appreciate any information for my education about these exciting animals.
Karen: I too love Blue Jays! They are one of my very favorite! I think they probably do migrate further south than Oregon! Of course here in Northern Florida we get them all year around, so I am just guessing!
By the way, congratulations for the award!
I love the blue jays! Right now I have some in the yard eating dogfood. They do leave here for a while in the summer than come back in the fall and stay all winter. Just seems to be the hot weather that drives them into the woods or maybe there's so much food for them they don't need me! Peace, Rage
Happy 2006 everyone!
