Black Parrot

Here’s some pictures of a bird I mentioned the other day, which I called a black parrot.

Technically, it’s called a smooth-billed ani (Crotophaga ani)

I took these yesterday morning whilst I was posting my post, when one came to our birdbath and was raising a ruckus with a ching-ching. (A ching-ching is a similar looking bird but with a much thinner beak.) This particular bird seems to have a smaller than average beak.

Today, I’m throwing my bicycle in the back of my van, and dropping the van of for the fifty megameter oil change. Then ride to work.

Yesterday, I went to the beach for lunch, and it rained. I finally got to use my new umbrella! I sat on my towel in the sand, under my umbrella, and smoked a cigar. I didn’t swim.

This morning I barely walked, let alone run. My first toe, next to my big toe, hurts like hell. Hurt like hell yesterday too. Dammit, I don’t want to go back to the doctor. I feel like that’s what’s going to end up happening.

It rained really good early this morning, all clear now…. Well, maybe not, it was clear earlier, but I see a big old thunderhead growing now. Hopefully I’ll stay ry on my bike ride.

Have a great day!
