Two gators and a shadow of my former self. Should have gotten down on my knees, but with matched titanium hips, it isn't easy, or pretty.

That bird converses with rocks?
Redwing blackbird, whose call is a welcome sign of Spring.

According to the rules I was given, I'm not allowed to bend my hips past a right angle, get into a bathtub or kayak, play any sport such as tennis, basketball, etc where it's necessary to run (also forbidden to jog), I was advised never to tie my shoe laces (use pre-tied elastic laces or wear sandals, loafers, etc). and never pull on my socks using my hands (use a special sock-puller-onner). But guess what? I cheat, shamelessly. But, I do now understand those people in the ads who say "I've fallen, and I can't get up." Without something to put my hands on (chair, tree, big rock) it is very difficult to get up off the ground, and I suspect within a few years it will become impossible. Makes me mad

And here are some pretty birdies

May I introduce

The Mallard Family - Mom Dad and the six ducklings at the Topeka Zoological Park

not sure when they plan on meeting Uncle Donald and his nephews

they didn't make it easy, they stayed at the far side of the pond which no one can approach

Nor sure about the id on this hawk. Might be a Cooper's, but might be the everglades phase of a red-shouldered hawk, which has a very pale head.

Black racer, an Everglades subspecies that's the wrong color.

I know it's a four-letter word, but I'll type and post it anyway - - CUTE!

Blue wing teal with it's distinctive white facial crescent.
