here are a few pictures from recent adventures of the birds.  First, at a gathering at Eric and Mary Lloyd Wright's place in the hills above Malibu, California, and then at the Bosque del Apache Wild Bird Refuge in southern New Mexico -- in both places, making new friends along the way.

hoping that you are having a good holiday time, with friends or family or yourself,
