We've included a photo of Alex in this mailing. It was nice to come to the rescue of one of the
babies again. I hadn't done that in quite some time. They're so trusting and accepting when
they're babies. It was a pleasure to have his company for the brief time that Alex was here.
As you may recall, two years ago I stood underneath some trees that the parrots use a lot
in order to stop them being cut down by a neighbor. The city stepped in and negotiated with
the neighbor. Some of the members of this list contributed to a fund to save the trees, and
a deal was worked out. I'm happy to say that the trees were recently trimmed, and they look
great. The parrots are using them and everybody seems happy. Special thanks to Ted Kipping
and his crew for the expert job on the trees.
