Carolina Wren

Carolina Wren

Day 332 / 365

What is a parrot’s favorite game?

Hide and Speak!

Interesting Fact: Unlike other wren species in its genus, only the male Carolina Wren sings the loud song. In other species, such as the Stripe-breasted Wren of Central America, both members of a pair sing together. The male and female sing different parts, and usually interweave their songs such that they sound like a single bird singing. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Carolina_Wren/lifehistory )

The County Center in White Plains is the most visited building in Westchester. Events for all seasons, graduations, flea markets, seniors event, coin show, card show ect.

This is home for me. I tend to find some places amusing, some fun, some boring. 
The Pet Cemetery in Harsdale is most historic.  I was told that an elephant is buried there, but the person who told me that, has tendencies to recount tall stories.

Stuff eggplant slices with tomato, cheese and onion. Press the eggplant slightly with the palm of your hand to form a fan. At…
