Poor Ibis...great picture!

I was watering this morning and splashed towards a blue jay. He must have liked it, I soon had about 8 jays hanging out for a shower.

Here's an old photo of a flock of White Ibis in my previous back yard. That's my helpful assistant in the foreground.

My assistant was called away, so I got this shot that appears to be an Ibis bus stop.

Beautiful birds. Did your assistant talk to the Ibis?

He offered to let them wait inside where it's cooler, but his twitchy tail made them suspicious.

You folks seem to have very strange pets. Although I have often had the same thoughts when it comes to Teddy. He knows the difference between left and right. When he wants to go out. He grabs Spikes right hand and pulls on it very gently. He knows that, that is the hand that holds the leash.

Django -- that's rich, PF.

And Addie, when I see that adorable little white dog in the Caesar's dog food commercial (his master looks to be an airline pilot) I think of Teddy.
