First of all, a happy 20th birthday to my Eldest, who reads my blog daily, whilst away at university. Miss you hon, and it was a wonderful two short weeks together.

Back to our vacation. Today, I will share photos of the birds we met along our journey. Yes, I know they were all in captivity, which makes it more than a bit artificial, but it was also an excellent photographic opportunity - forgive the wire mesh backgrounds in most of the shots. Try to imagine birds flying freely amid the rain forests.
That brings me to a enigmatic topic. We traipsed through the rainforest in Belize for the best part of an hour - wonderful foliage and trees. I expected the palm trees and overhanging canopy to be filled with the sounds and sights of exotic birds. In the hour we might have seen and heard a couple small blackbirds, certainly nothing exotic avian-wise, in this relatively untouched natural haven.

And that is about all I have to say for today.
