Snow Birds/Snow Elephants?

O.K.

Floridians know about Snowbirds.

In the cold weather many northerners come south for the winter,

we call them Snowbirds because many birds also fly south.

In the cold winter months we get a number of birds from up north on their way to summer homes down south.

Sandhill Carnes, Sparrows, Crows, Robins and last but by no means least,

my favorite, the Goldfinch.

The Snowbirds are lighter and easy to spot, plus each seems to have their special place to stop over on their way south

and

unlike humans

seem to get along fine with our natives.

We do everything we can to keep them around for as long as possible?

However, a Snow-Elephant?

We welcome them all and it is about time!

Circus Elephants Retire at Secluded Florida Preserve

Both Donna and I and maybe many others plan on getting

as close as possible to stand and Welcome our newest neighbors.

This is going to prove to be a ‘Miracle in its self’

because as it stands now

“Visitors are not welcome!”

Remember the

“Children’s Movie”

1941 Dumbo?

I watched it in 1947!

The elephants were treated horrible and gave me nightmares for months

watching as a child?

And there was not much improvement

in later Dumbo movies.
