A lovely image! Such a beautiful bird. It has been raining here for about the same amount of time. Not seeing the sun is getting depressing!

@Elaine Hancock: I can understand Elaine..It has been pouring here for the last two weeks...the last time it rained this way was 100 years ago, they say..the city streets are flooded..there are boats instead of cars and buses and other vehicles!! And the prediction of rain is for another four days !! It is like Venice here !!
