Key West Winter

with 2 comments

The cries of rooster are the sounds of the southernmost tip of the USA. Teddy Roosevelt proclaimed the Keys a bird sanctuary. It’s a crime to shoot or kill a bird, any bird, even a chicken (take that Purdue!). The roosters, are descendants (rampant) from the Cuban settlers’ predilection for cockfights….You’ll find them everywhere on the island. Cock-a-doodling without regarding for dawn or darkness. Their internal clocks are completely screwed up. You’ll get used to it. Or not.
