Ruby Tuesday-Rocco and Scarlet

I live in a trailer park and the guy who owns the park has about 200 exotic birds, some of which he has on display--along with numerous lemurs. This is Scarlet and Rocco from a few years ago.

OK, I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida which is a Sanctuary Island for wildlife. I volunteer for a wildlife hospital. I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet

Beautiful birdies!

Weird question, but does he have a huge van to transport all his critters if he ever needs to evacuate?

I love birds such as this, but 200?! Man, that is a lot of work. At one time I had seven lovebirds, a few parakeets, a dozen finches, a couple teils....then I found out Nick is allergic to feathers! Now I raise chickens to get my bird fix. I'd be down there trying to befriend that guy just so I could hold his birds! :) Perfect Ruby Tuesday.

Gayle shoulda been a zookeeper! :)

Yo Sno, you're not the one that lived so close to the birds, they woke you up every morning, are you?

Mare, I don't know what he does with the birds during an evacuation.

Gayle, they have a "show" at the Park at 10:30 during season and you can hold the birds. So come on down.

Tink, no I don't live close to the birds thank goodness. I couldn't take that!
