  11. The first and only time I saw a myna bird was when I was a kid, visiting Florida. We walked into a shop and I heard someone calling, and repeating, 'Warm out, ain't it!' I looked around and saw that it was the bird talking to me. :-) Fun memory. Enjoyed your photos.

  17. Fun mosaic .. Could be a travel poster for Hawaii! We saw a couple of wild Myna birds here near the Everglades a couple of years ago... apparently they were tame ones who were set free...everything that doesn't need cold weather thrives here.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
