Personally I would never ever use the word “Jack Ass or Ass” for the donkey. I reserve this name for the special two-legged human walking around in our most fragile world. The donkey is the most understood of all equine in our world, they are the under dog and thus why I am doing everything I can to educate. GOD made the Donkey for a reason they are humble and smart. I pray you get the opportunity to meet a donkey in person one day.

We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly…. Humans compared…

When Dan and I visit aviaries, we spend quite a bit of time in them. Yes, we are birdwatchers and do photography, but it still amazes me the ones who come in, look around as they walk through, and then leave. They may be in there five minutes. We are there for 30, 45, 60 minutes or longer, depending on the size of the aviary.
Me and my big mouth causes me to speak up and point out birds they just walked by and never saw. Most times it is appreciated, but there are times when the kids (especially) only want to see the “big” animals. Well, a 6 foot Sarus Crane is “big.”

I love hummers too!

We love to watch the hummingbirds feeding on our porch. The cats watch them, too, but pretend to not be interested as they know the hummers are much too fast for them ….except when they fly into a window and are knocked unconscious momentarily. After the telltale thump against the window, we quickly ran outside, saw the tiny bird on the deck and chased the cats away. My husband picked him up gently and held him in his hands. It was a male ruby-throated hummingbird recognizable by the bright red throat coloring.
The cats feigned disinterest but kept watching.
As he protectively held the tiny bird in his hands, the little one rallied a bit
Soon, he looked alert and was in control of his body again
In the next moment, he was gone:
Another successful bird rescue! I recently posted about a
