I am a 68-yo retired Physical Therapist Asst. living in Texas. Currently I have ~5 dozen webpages, including 3 homepages, an e-novel, and 1 blog. I love cats, writing, and thinking about the big questions. I am also a singer-songwriter, though no one has heard of me--yet.

  1. Beautiful,and all true-no faking ! Of course it does not say where he is,but it will be in the native forests-we have a small group of them up in the hills above the city.They are not seen too often because they blend in amongst the trees and native bush.
    They are known imitators-I haven’t heard the car alarm or camera clicks before either–aren’t they wonderful ?
    Unfortunately they are prey to the feral cats which catch them. That is why there are now laws in our state that all cats must be kept in at night-such an easy thing to do,but there are folk who do not do that with the result that we lose our small native creatures.

    Thanks for sending it on.

  2. They are truly wonderful! With a brain so small, their hearing and “speech” centers must take up the largest portion. I was amazed at the motorized camera sound and the chain saw/2-man saw sounds. A pity that they are also food for hungry predators. With that plume of glorious tail feathers, they may not be as fast as other birds in avoiding the cats that some people allow to go wild and fend for themselves.
