NEXT DESTINATION? Guadalajara, Mexico April 1, 2020
You know that you are bored when all you have to do is watch the Grackles mating dances. Apparently these are local birds and will not be migrating anywhere. They stay right in this area for the summer. They are similar to magpies and everyone despises them. They are noisy and rude and will eat anything. But they are entertaining. They do a little dance for us every day right beside our pad. The male gets all puffy and squawks away and the female just carries on with business and ignores him. Hmmmm Sounds familiar!!! And all the effort seems to be in vain because we have not witnessed any action to date!! Familiar as well??
When there are 2 males around, they strut around with their heads in the air until one of them puffs up and squawks and the other one flies away. Very interesting to watch.
And then there is our friend the gecko!!! He has been living somewhere in the Ponderosa all winter and I really feel sorry for him when we head north. I wonder where he will figure he has had enough and bail out. He is fun because he sings to us every evening out on the patio.
A little walk on the beach and a sunset and our day was done. Hope your day was great too.
