THE BIG PAPAY-OFF
You gotta wake up pretty early to catch the papaya theives around here. Unless you go out and check the papaya trees EVERYDAY this is what you get. Empty, hollowed out papaya's. This one was still green yesterday and when I went out to collect it this morning I got quite a surprise. I suspect it is the Japanese White Eye - a lovely little green bird with a white circle around it's eye. Now I am all happy that the birds are having their fill and hanging out in our yard, but really. I guess the payoff is that they will carry the seeds off and create a new papaya tree somewhere else... that somewhere hopefully being our yard.
