It takes a spot of courage to stand up tall and a bit of derring-do to rise when you fall

A Semi-Interesting Phenomenon

Once a year a strange thing happens near my house. There's a main street that I travel a lot, and once a year around this time the parrots come to call and take roost in one tree---the same tree every time---on this street that I've mentioned. They stay for several weeks and then they're gone. Just like that.

This spot is only about five minutes away from where I live, and I often go and park across the street and just watch this tree full of beautiful green parrots. They're loud and very lively. I've never found out where they come from or where they're going or why they stop here. But I love that it's so out of the ordinary and so bizarre. And because it is, I prefer it to be unexplained.
