Our Feathered Friends


Some birds in a cage
Pretty at rest or in flight
Content and happy



Some people might not like to see birds in a cage rather than flying free, but these birds were in an incredibly clean and attractive enclosure.  Since we have birds in our house, a parrot and a cockatiel, I do not find this offensive. I saw them while visiting a friend at Carondelet Village in Highland, a recently constructed and beautiful community for retired people that already has a loooong waiting list.

  1. I am sure that the birds add to the ambiance of the retirement community. Julie's mother brings her dog with her everyday to the care home where Julie's grandmother lives, and the people there love the dog, and vice versa.

  2. I always wanted an aviary, but never got round to it. I used to have a parrot. He hated everyone except me. He went to live in an aviary eventually.

  3. Interesting markings on these birds. I see a dark line under their eyes. I wonder what kind of bird it is.

  4. I'll take em in a cage or flying high... just don't want them dive-bombing or depositing things on my head. Yuk!

  5. They are very beautiful! And I think it's fine if they're in a clean environment and well-cared for.

    Re your comment on Ocala: I'm afraid Lance was not the only one; I'd bet everyone was/is doping. And that's what all sports have gone to...even golf is suspect these days. The premium is on winning and nothing else matters. I remember when teaching 8th graders how many thought cheating was fine so long as you didn't get caught.

  6. I used to have some finches. They would make little peeping sounds and always seemed to be happy. I think birds would be a nice addition for a senior community.

  7. A great joy for the residents I'm sure. The birds in your last pic seem to be a species of Dove.

  11. I'm sure they make a very positive addition to the retirees Kate, like a dog or cat.
