My only grandson will be one year old next month. He is my life and my pride and joy. I am so blessed to have him in my life. I know how you feel about your grandchildren cause I feel the same way. What a blessing they are to us.
My bird is a Quaker parrot, quite a bit larger then the Quaker parakeet (though still a small parrot in general). They are A.K.A. a "monk parrot or monk parakeet." The only difference is size. They aren't as loud as your conure nor as talkative as your congo African grey... BTW, the Congo is my favorite subspecies of the African gray :-) My next parrot will be an Eclectus, subspecies Vosmaeri. Meanwhile, Kiwi gets all of my attention.
I love to talk about birds - let's keep in touch in that regard if you're game - It's hard to find fellow bird lovers out there who want to chat about their parrots/conures, etc.
Thank you for accepting me as a friend. How very nice of you! Is your bird a conure? Hard for me to tell. I am a parrot head myself. I have a congo african grey and a white Cockatiel.
We live in Sanford, much closer than you. We go to Oak Hill quite often, to fish nearby and also stop by the wildlife sanctuary. We have gone out that way twice for the launch, but decided not to go in all the way because we don't want to be stuck in traffic. We love Oak Hill so much it is fine with us to stop at the Indian mound to watch the launch. We aren't the only ones to make that choice. We had a lots of company. Nice to meet you....Kathy
Wow, ..I have pics a lot like yours except mine is taken from Seminole Rest (Not as close) where the indian mounds are. There is so much history there....http://www.nps.gov/cana/upload/seminole_rest_significance.pdf. I hope that is a good link. This is one of the more beautiful spots in Fl.......soooo serene and the dolphins swim there..Majestic. Next time you go watch the shuttle you should visit the area if you have not been there yet. You will love the peace and tranquility. There is also a large wildlife conservation area nearby which is full of wildlife.......Nice pics Balboa...Thanks for posting them...K
