X FACTOR   6 comments

I pass this railroad crossing sign several times a week.  One day, I saw a group of monk parakeets building a nest in it.  As I was coming home yesterday, there was no traffic, so I decided to stop and photograph it, when I was graced by the unexpected appearance of one of the birds!  If I didn’t know better, I’d think he/she was posing for me!!!

UH OH – HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED A FEW FEET AWAY FROM THIS SIGN A COUPLE OF WEEKS AFTER THIS POST:
