We took ds to the Doctor today and on the way back, we were on a small town street when I heard a strange bird, so strange I had dh go around the block...... Sure enough right here in central Illinois........... 2 blue and gold macaws..... one flying around and another sitting in a tree..... We watched them for about 5 minutes and left .... It was quit a site to see !!!!!!! I grew up in Pasadena California and seeing very large flocks of wild parrots, and the occasional macaw, toucan, cockatoo was not unusual, but here this was odd !!!!!!!!!!!! A pleasant surprise though..........
