Time to book that vacation?
My last few posts have been rather dreary as we stumble through the mid-winter blahs in the north. I scraped ice off my windows in the dark this morning and drove on icy roads into work, and dreamt of sun and warmth and birds and flowers. No wonder Canadian “Snowbirds” leave in droves for Florida, Arizona and other warm locations at this time of year.
So here are a couple of pictures my dad took in their yard in western Mexico. I am guessing this lovely bird is perhaps a Scott’s Oriole. (KGMom looked it up and it is a Bullock's Oriole)
My young cousin, Samuel is in Arizona for several weeks. Yesterday he posted some excellent pictures he took of another southern bird.
Now I need to go and check out Expedia…
