Living In The Miami Redland And Loving It

I love Miami. It’s a vibrant city and the weather is right up my alley. But it’s a busy city. I won’t lie and sugarcoat the traffic conditions. It’s hectic. But the Miami Redlands area is further Southwest than Miami proper and we don’t suffer from traffic congestion.I live on almost an acre and half of land. It’s sweet. I can’t stick my arm out the window and touch my neighbor’s home. If I want to visit him, I can. All my neighbors are lovely. But I’m not stuck in his face. And he’s not stuck in mine. Anyway, that’s not why I’m writing this. I’m writing this because of the porch. I was sitting on the porch enjoying the balmy breeze and watching the effect it has on the palm trees in our yard. Then I closed my eyes and realized that the birds were singing something fierce. Boy, were they happy.

There must have been at least a hundred birds singing. I just sat there with my eyes closed and took in all the sounds they were making. A singing bird can make my heart soar. Imagine a hundred. It made me think how blessed I am to live in the Miami Redlands. There’s enough room all around that birds come visit all the time. I am sure many live here too. I opened my eyes and tried to spot them. A lot of them were easy. There were the quakers over on the feeding post in my neighbor’s lawn. There were black birds and grey birds up on the utility lines. And upon further inspection I could see some grey ones with colorful blue feathers throughout the live oak trees. I realized that I don’t know the names of the birds, except for the quakers. I can spot those little green parrots a mile away…and hear them too. They have a distinct chatter.

I ordered a bird identifying book last week. I can’t wait to get it. It’ll help me find out more about my little friends that are sharing this space with me in my Miami Redlands home. Maybe I can even learn to sing with them. I doubt I’ll sound as sweet, but with a little practice maybe just as enthusiastic.
