Bunny

A super cute wild rabbit loves to eat clover and other wild greens in my yard. Wild rabbit is very fast and timid (so far) which makes me nervous and a bit shaky like a (part-)Quaker who shakes at the sight of God(ess), but I’ll keep trying to get closer photos and update when time permits.

Momma Turtle

A big turtle climbed out of lake to lay her annual eggs then climbed back in lake and swam away.

I put a pinwheel on her nest to try to keep the crows from digging up and eating the eggs.

Parrots

I went with my friend, George Sommers, author of I SAW WILD PARROTS IN NEW YORK CITY!, Yellow Bird, and Papita to The Parrot Society of New England’s “Spring Is In The Air” Bird Behavior and Toy Rehab Seminar in Manchester, NH. The workshop by Robin Shewokis and Concetta DellaRocco Ferragamo included parrot care, training, Q&A, and a mock training session I was volunteered into as the “trainer” of another woman as the “parrot”. In attendance were many beautiful parrots and people including the talented artist, Jill Casteel, with her beautiful artwork. I took a few photos with my camera until the battery died and more with my cell phone which I will “upload” later. The macaw below would fluff it’s wings every time I said, “You’re so pretty.” Afterwards we watched a fun DVD that came with the book, Snowball The Dancing Cockatoo, on his portable DVD player on the lawn while Yellow Bird and Papita chirped contentedly together in their love nest.

Apparently the natural habitat of these lovely exotic animals and their human friends is being rapidly destroyed by “Big-Agri-Biz” to graze cattle which seems an inefficient, uneconomical, and unsustainable use of natural resources because the Amazon Rainforest produces most of the oxygen we need and fruits, veggies, and seeds contain all the nutrients we need including carbohydrates, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants (prevent and reverse cancer), fiber, enzymes, and phyto-nutrients to build natural wellness and prevent costly health care crisis.
