Pretty bird, pretty bird

The periquitos now visit us daily.  They grow fat on the chestnuts that remain on the ground while they flit and flutter about in a little group.  Pablo and I are constantly saying to one another, “Oh look, the periquitos are back!”  They are like another addition to our family.  We watch them through our kitchen window and try to sneak up on them to take a nice photo of their colorful plumage.  With the birds singing their songs and the days getting ever so slightly longer it feels like spring might not be too far off.

Happy 4th of July to my countrymen!  While we didn’t shoot off any fireworks nor sing any teary-eyed patriotic songs, we did enjoy the evening with friends while watching the final game of the Copa America... ganó Chile!!
