Romulo Rejon – “I was in a marine cruise in Walvis Bay, Namibia, watching dolphins, seals, mola molas, cormorants, not paying so much attention in taking pictures. But then, the captain threw a piece of fish from the boat and I had the privilege of picturing a pelican at the exact moment he grabbed the bite.”

The birdies enjoyed the fresh air on the porch, while I pulled weeds and bagged leaves this afternoon. It was a nice day to enjoy the outdoors.
I am enjoying every bit of the outdoors that I can before the heat returns.
Dread the summer :( someday, I will escape the summers, someday soon.
The Budgies are Baby and Nelson - The Parakeet should be named Houdini, the little escape artist, but it’s a she so her name is Emma.
The Canary is Mango.
I don’t name Finches, for various reasons, but I do like listening to them.

Chauna torquata (Anhimidae), native to South America.
If you want to know why this bird is named screamer, listen here its call.
HH: I played this and my budgies shut the hell up and looked nervous - they must have thought a larger bird was coming into their territory.
