Enchanted Forest?

Around here?

What a charming notion.

Never heard tell of it.

The fresh air is getting to you.

I bet they say that to all the mortals, Em.

  10. baby birdie says:

    Forests are enchanted if they have such cute fawns.

  11. baby birdie says:

    Or maybe she’s born with it, lol.

  13. (The Original) Mel says:

    So I was driving my squad car through the projects today and I saw four wild green parrots walking down the sidewalk. Then, they flew up on a fence. Now if that’s not proof there is an enchanted forest, I don’t know what is.

  14. Yep, that nose needs a boopin’ possibly more than any nose I’ve ever seen.

  15. Mel, where do you live that there are wild green parrots roaming the streets? I wanna live there!

  16. One glance into those doe eyes and I was a goner.

  17. (The Original) Mel says:

    In a place not likely to have parrots. I think they were escapees that did well for themselves.

  18. Sounds like L.A. When I moved here years ago, I was stunned to see parrots flying around. I called the Audubon and they said the original birds may have gotten loose from a home or a pet store but now the offspring are all over L.A.

    I love the cheeky buggers!

  19. Those eyes! That nose! Those ears! The spotted fur!

    The lashes, whiskas…


  20. Ah, the half-knowing smile, the plink-plink eyes, the nommable ears . . . purdy.

  21. tesstricks says:

    *in my best catty tone* Nah, those are definitely enhanced. *smirk*

  22. I think that fawn is smirking.

  23. There is a couple flocks of them in San Francisco too. IT is a bit of a startle to see them.

  24. Waits for the little birds to pop out singing disney songs and dancing with the squirrels and rabbits while little fawn skitters around in the meadow grass

    Boops nose again for good measure.

  25. Is that a rubber duckie perched on a branch on the tree behind her? Now that is enchanted!

  26. I was just about to ask the same thing!! I think it is. Glad I’m not the only one seeing that. 🙂

  27. No, my best friend is not a talking bunny. Why do you ask?

  28. TrixandSam says:

    Holy Mother of Baby Jesus!!!! How is something that cute possible??????

  29. victoreia says:

    That’s what it looks like to me!

  30. The eyes have it!

  31. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    um…ka….with all due respect & stuff….you DO KNOW, that there were little birdies singin’ stuff, *BEFORE* Walt was even born-ded, don’tcha, huh?

    A Woise Guoy
    (so to speak)

  32. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    I officially *second* every response in this comment. Including the faint.

  33. My god, the captions on this blog. ARE SO. FRACKING. GOOD.

    “What a charming notion. Never heard tell of it,” in calm and sensitive deer voice. ROFLamingo. I can totally hear it speak.

  34. Aren’t there some wild ones in NYC too? Supposedly they got loose at LaGuardia and now live in places like the football field lights at Brooklyn college.

  35. reposssst! CUTENESS ABOUND-BIDI-BOUND. Boop oncemore.

  36. janet2buns says:

    Perhaps it is a hummingbird feeder.

  37. Awwww. Looks like one of the four fawns we had the privilege of raising when we were kids (our dad was a forest ranger) and we had four orphaned fawns – we kept each of them a year and then turned them out to the wild. When they were little they basically lived in our house and event watched TV. They are such gentle, beautiful creatures.

  38. Okay I came back to say I love his cheeky little smile… like he is amused at us for fawning all over him.

  39. but not cartoon birds singing. LOL

    Cindereelie cinderelli got no time for dilly dally…

  40. oe oriole feede they are orange

  41. Awww, thanks for the repost 🙂 He was such a sweetheart!

  42. Chicago has wild quaker parakeets too. (Not really parrots.)

  43. Yes, and I only just regained consciousness. 😀

  44. Faaaaaaaaawn!! *ded on keyboarddsjkbdffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

  45. One of the most stunningly beautiful faces I’ve ever seen.

  46. muttluver says:

    *narrows eyes* I don’t believe you.

  47. muttluver says:

    I think I’mma use that from now on.

  48. muttluver says:

    I thought it looked familiar….

  49. muttluver says:

    For some reason, “Dam Dadi Doo” just started playing in my head. Now /that’s/ an earworm.

    Also: DA NOSE!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. There are parrots around where I work in south west London, they are noisy little bleeders. The theory as to why they are there is; that they escaped from film studios, that were making the Bogart Movie ‘African Queen’

  51. Fawns watching your TV, that sounds a magical childhood or was that just normal to you?

  52. As know one else has said it; what a little dear/deer.

  53. baileysgrandmom says:

    There was a movie about the parrots in S.F. a few years back, but I cannot remember the name of it. It was pretty good.

  54. baileysgrandmom says:

    Well, d’oh! New rule for 21st century: Google first; comment second. The movie was “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill,” and it is a true story.

  55. dedksi, I am.
    from head-splosion.
    so freakin cute, ohmuhgaw.

  56. What a beauty!!! *swoon*

  57. Peanut's mama says:

    This comment made me LOL! I think it was the Mother of Baby Jesus part. My lil sis says that all the time.


  58. “I keep seeing spots in front of my eyes!”

    “Have you seen a doctor?”

    “No, just spots.”

    God, I love that one.

  59. My first thought was that it was either a giant candy corn or a tiny Jayne hat. 😉

  60. mitzithecat says:

    Me three…especially the whiskers! Makes me want to tickle the chin. She is sure a cutie!

  61. Awww, it didn’t embed. 😦

  62. CariceLaur says:

    I have to be careful in early summer around my home. Walking in the woods, I never know when I’ll stumble upon a little fawn bedded down. Their camouflage is so superb, you can walk right past them! I might grab a quick photo, tell him or her what a good little baby they are and then sneak off before momma can come and smack me upside the head with her sharp little hooves. Such a precious sight! Our kids are such wusses compared to such babies!

  63. Hmmm. That kinda looks like my backyard. a little bit.

    Perhaps I live in an enchanted forest?

  64. I thought the EXACT same thing! Rubber Duckie! Glad I’m only slightly crazy instead of totally crazy.

  65. Count me in for another who saw Rubber Duckie!

  66. if you do let me be the first to say … You lucky duck you! 🙂

  67. Colonel Jenna says:

    As of at least a few years ago, Quaker parrots were not permitted as pets in Kansas, probably because they are too capable of managing for themselves in the wild if they should escape.

  68. Ooh, he’s thinking about how much he loves his favorite rubber ducky!

  69. Me, too! Er, three! Ehm…fourteenth!

  70. April's NaNa says:

    Orange you gonna tell us what that orange “thingy” is above her head? Or am I the only one that sees it?

  71. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    I want some sparkle noises
    (*WITHOUT importing spam or malware, onto my harddrive*).
    Where can I get some ?

    Living in Wonderland

  72. Andi from NC says:

    That second picture is so Bogey and Bacall: “You know how to whistle don’t cha’. Just put your lips together and blow.” What a little minx!!!

  73. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    Excellent point of logique. I give you Full Points, and an A+!!

  74. Lolcutest of Snorg says:

    Even if it isn’t… it is for the mere sake of squee!!

  75. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    wow them’s some SERIOUSLY HAPPEH elves, theah!!!

  76. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    **I watched an entire 5-10 minutes of Martha Stewart during the holiday weeks, because she was “creating” a giant virtual “candy” corn candy from styrofoam, glue & 3 colors of glitter.**

    It was actually surprisingly attractive.

  77. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:


  78. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    very very clevaire, Mme ka!!!

  79. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:


    why don’ I live where YOU live?????

  80. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    excellent connection/ description.

  81. She has beautiful blue eyes in the second picture.

  82. It was pretty normal – they would curl up next to one of us on the floor and if the TV was on – they would turn their head to watch – or should I say “listen” to the noises. :o) Also, they would slip and slide on the linoleum floor in the kitchen (like Bambi sliding with all four hooves going out on ice) so my mom put little throw rugs on the floor and they learned to jump from rug-to-rug so they would not slip. Really fond memories.

  83. (The Original) Mel says:

    I’d like to think they were imported by pirates.

  84. What an exquisitely beautiful anipal… omg.

  85. Or rather, really fawned memories?

  86. She’s the Lucky Rubber Ducky we’re all seeing in the background!

  87. Just … too much … perfect … cannot compute … overloaded … glorious.

  88. I think is is the flower on that tree behind her which would be a tulip poplar. Right color and from what I can tell shape. I have 2 in my back yard
    (tulip poplars not plink-tastic deer).

  89. Surprise! I like animals.

    No stop!

  90. Yay! Oakley, you are Fawntastic! 😀

  91. ♥ Snape’s patronus ♥

  92. Lewis n' Clark says:

    “The Parrots of Telegraph Hill”, I think. They almost cut down the tree that the birdies were in, but I think outrage saved it.

  93. I just wanna boop that nosie!

  94. warrior rabbit says:

    Also in San Diego. Da boids get around! Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

  95. 260Oakley says:

    Love your avatar. Is that what you wore to the office holiday party?

  96. There are parrots in the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn…live ones, that is…at least there are supposed to be. I live nearby and the parrots have not yet consented to show themselves to me.

  97. R DeMeyer says:

    There are a bunch living in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. They make nests right above the entryway in all the delicate stonework. They’re nests look like a miniature city, and it’s fantastic! I go there on my weekends and just sit and watch them sometimes. ❤

  98. Sorry, (TO)Mel, that one took me a few minutes, then I had to scroll back up to see if I had read correctly, then LOL to the nth degree!

  99. You have our sympathy, that your tulip trees are shorn of their baby deersies.

  100. This post renews my hope that spring will come. At minus 27 degrees celcius today, that hope was flagging.
    Thank you.

  101. I’ve been thinking about what the fawn’s voice sounds like it in my head. As it’s saying “Enchanted forest? Around here? What a charming notion.” And I’ve settled on some combination of Paul McCartney’s voice and the voices of the two-headed female vulture in that Bugs Bunny in Transylvania cartoon. Emily and Agatha! Yes. McCartney and Emily. That’s the deer’s voice that I’m hearing. BRILLIANT.

  102. AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH!!!! Rubber duckie invasion! Run for your life!!!

  103. It’s YELLOW!!! Get it right! 🙂

  104. baby birdie says:

    Oh yeah, that’s Snape’s Patronus! I totally forgot that.

  105. ♥ kissing Snape’s patronus on the lips ♥

  106. Go for it! I’ve seen someone write “ROFLcopter” and “LMAOsaurus”, so and I decided to try my own take on the concept. Pretty happy with with “ROFLamingo” if I do say so.

  107. There are a flock of Quakers living on the creek about 1/4 of a mile from my house. I see them every summer bathing in the water standing on the side of the road.

  108. I live in Dallas county in Texas.

  109. would it be totally immature to take your comment completely out of context and keep the picture of Quakers bathing in a creek all day? and maybe some Shakers coming along and stamping in the puddles?

  110. It barfed in my mouth 😦
