That puffball to the left of the male cardinal in the tree in the distance is a mourning dove. I've never seen one that fluffy!
I have seen birds fluff up their feathers in winter. I think it helps keep them warmer.

Looks sorta Disneyesque, Andy. And warm. And a foot less snow than we got today.

Glad to see you're enjoying your vacation. And for sharing it so we can all vacation vicariously.

This is a sunset I took a couple of months ago. One of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen.

We ran into Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts who is from Aruba. He flew from Boston to Aruba with us and we ran into him at a restaurant a few days later. That's SO and our grandson with him. Click image for larger version
