A Fine Flock of Feathered Friends

We have quite the collection of winged pets. Right around the last week of September our birds start to migrate in. Edgar, their leader usually leads the pack followed by his son Poe. They hang around for the month of October and when Halloween is over, head south for the winter.

This cute little guy is Hubert. My daughter Kenisha found him at the bottom of an overlooked barrel in a warehouse. Abandoned by his mother at a young age, he would have surely not made it very long. She scooped him up and brought him home, cleaned him up and nursed him back to health. He is now very happy and the ravens have accepted him in their pack as one of their own.

Last but not least of the flying friends is Ferdinand. We aren't exactly sure where he came from. One October morning he just showed up, and has been making the flight ever since. Don't let his small size fool you, he definitely holds his own with the others and has earned his spot in the flock.
