Two years ago I wrote my weekly column for The Yucatan Times. This year I changed to twice a month. For the next two columns, I’ll share a few favorites that illustrate beauty and behavior from a visiting Baltimore Oriole with tons of attitude to two White-fronted Parrots searching for a suitable home.
Enjoy my visions of feathered diversity.
Now venture outdoors to create your own favorite memories, either with your mind’s eye or with a camera.
