Oh my, Jigidi has its own Resident Ornithologist!!.... and who'd a thunk it, it's our own Louise!! On a serious note, I found the info to be most interesting. Who knows, perhaps I'll see one in person next year. The bird would not be the only draw, dear one.... :-)))
We have special presentation techniques for the right side up side... It will be touch and go... Got lots to do in the right side up side before going back to standing on our heads... Good for the circulation you know.... Thanks, Your PGness... :) :)))
Non-native gallinaceous birds were introduced to Florida as a captive species. There are 13 subspecies worldwide but the only American subspecies has a distribution limited to American Samoa and nearby islands. The most likely origin of the Florida birds is the grey-headed subspecies P. porphyrio polionotus that naturally occurs from the Caspian Sea in an arc through the Indian subcontinent to Sumatra. A few blue-headed individuals have also been seen and may represent another subspecies. In their native range Purple Swamphens are habitat generalists andare found in a variety of wetlands and wetland-associated habitats. They are often found in disturbed lands. They are aggressive and may have potential to compete with native species and negatively impact plant life in the wetlands where they are found....Thanks, Jill... We will try to find you one for your next birthday... Mailing one might be tricky.... Hugs... :) :))))
Great marsh hens and a great job of presentation. I hope you can do this when you get right side up again and not loose the touch.
There she/he is! I found out they are somewhere in the States, perhaps, the Everglades??? Really fun solve, Sally. Thanks!
Have you been off gallivanting around.... Somewhere out of the heat for awhile... You probably mentioned it, but somehow we missed seeing any comments re your plans.... Hope you had a good time.... And took lots of photos.... We'll be watching for them, in between checking our lists and packing.... Hugs dear friend... Good to see you on the board.... :) :)))))
Thanks, Edie... You're only 5 seconds off the top... I'd say that's pretty durn good.... We do try to keep you speedys on your toes... :) :))
Glad you liked it... We were out all day yesterday at a beautiful wedding.... Hope you had good fun on your away time... Thanks, mate..... :) :))))
Thank you, Rob... Now you've seen the whole cube.... We saw some peacocks yesterday... Roaming free but staying very close to a small restaurant... Where they get extra food regularly... They just might be good subjects for another cube.... :) :)))
Thanks, Sue.... I enjoyed figuring out how to make it all come together.... :) :)
Beautiful frame and background for the hen.
Great cube and frame Sally. I still haven't got the hang of these completely but I'm getting there. Thanks
Great to see the other side of this revolving box, glorious colours on this Purple Swamp Hen, Thanks Sally, :):)
This is terrific Sally - & now I know what was hiding on the other side :)))) Thanks!!
This is such a neat format. I enjoyed it.
Must be the sugar burst from all that chocolate..... Thanks, Mimi....:) :)
Wonderful puzzle Sally, and I actually did it pretty fast, for me, 2:53. Hooray!
