A few days ago after a leisurely ‘Birding Walk,’ I noticed several citrus trees that were loaded with small mandarin oranges. I asked my neighbors why no one was picking them.
“They’re too sour,” Melissa said with a dramatic twist of her face; “Nobody likes them.”
“Seriously?” I marveled, “May I go pick some? I also would like to get a higher view of the trees where I saw a mystery bird.
The mystery bird was absent, but the Peruvian Pygmy Owl watched from overhead.
The cafe, cacao and citrus area offers a great view of the houses below. Moringa grows up here, as well as down near the house!
There were several ‘mandarina’ trees with the tiny little oranges. I sampled one, which was almost like eating an extra sour Lifesaver’s mandarin candy!
