Three Woody's!

Goodness! Look at this!  Three Wood Storks and an Egret all in the same corner of the pond!  This is the first time more than one Wood Stork came by at a time...

of course I had to get a close up of the one closest to me..

I don't think I've told anyone yet but one of the Ibis now eats out of my hand... in fact he's even aggressive!  I can play with him now... I can pretend to want to hold his very long beak closed and he doesn't run away.  I can also now hold bread up high while standing up (vs crouching to feed the moorhens) and he will "fly up and grab it from my hand"...then come back for more.  It's all very cute  ...BUT...(big but!) the Ibis are "hollow"!  they can eat and eat and eat.. I am sure I could feed them a whole loaf of bread and they would want more!  So, I am glad only ONE Ibis has decided to be aggressive and eat from my hand.  Sometimes it's funny... he might get a large piece of bread and then all the other Ibis chase HIM like they do the Moorhens!   There are times I feel he's getting what he gives lol.

That is soooo cool! Glad you are making 'friends' ;)

Hey, how far are you from Orlando? Remember me saying they -might- move the animals Geoff works like in a year or so? Well, they started moving them yesterday. SURPRISE! We knew we were probably moving when the contract on the property was up in Jan, but we didn't expect to move so early! Needless to say I am running around like chicken with head whacked off LOL! Anyway, we are going to be living near Lakeland which is about 1/2 way between Orland and Tampa. I couldn't remember how far you are from there.

How WONDERFUL! I think that is just fantastic, Pat....So Very Sweet....!!
Love these pictures, too!

So sorry you had such a shock watching the Emmy's. Old Age Sucks, Big-Time!
It is true I have a lot of wonderful friends still here...But, I have lost quite a few really close and dear friends, too. It is horribly painful and these loses get harder and harder to take, I must say....So, I know what you are suffering Pat. My deep condolances to you, my dear.
