Oh my God! These birds migrate to Puerto Rico! It's like seeing photos of family way north. They are so beautiful!

Ralph - Can you tell us the story of this evening? I see people referring to "your words" and we would LOVE to hear a description of the experience! But I can't find a posting of that anywhere, just the pics. Please let us know where we can find your description or perhaps you can write another one. THANKS!
