Give Us The Bird - 21st Nov

Hey all,

Sarge's event is starting right now - it's just hit the 21st November here - trust me it's 7 minutes past midnight!

Here is my mum's moment of glory...... her shots of some feathered friends from her motorhoming extravaganza all round Australia. She wants you to know that most of her shots are birds in the wild....not pictured through cage wire in zoos. Well, most of them are..... you will see a couple of zoo shots too but she will disclose that. She has soooooooooooo many that she is gonna put up a few each day. But just don't think you can zone out and look at all the pretty birdies and not have a task to do. SHE wants you to spot the FAKE bird...... (*schnauzer eyes rolling*) .......see how you go!

Picture A: This one's for you Frankie (our Mayor), it's one of mum's very favourite Aussie birds of all time, the Kookaburra.

Picture B: That's a real wild Emu stalking the caravan park - my folks watched it go through boxes and bags outside tents and stuff lookin' for foodables. See my dad dad's bald head and the motorhome.

Picture C: Mum goes bonkers over this shot. They were doin' a croc tour on Yellow River in Kakadu, Northern Territory. This was an early morning flock of feathered ones on the edge of the river. Hopin' they weren't gonna be breakfast for some croc I suppose.

Picture D: A friendly Pelican with pretty eyelashes in Noosa, Queensland.

Picture E: The unusual ground nest of the Bower Bird. See the female inside and the male at the front. These dudes are famous for collecting stuff all of the same colour. See this one loves the colour white, check out all the valuables at the entrance to the tunnel nest!

Picture F: A colourful Parakeet, check out the red bit above the beak!

Picture G: It looks like a Wren, but we are not 100% sure which one. Mum was delighted to get this little fella all clear like. She wants you to know the little birds are the hardest to photograph.....they go like lightening!

Picture H: Whew last one. This funny lookin' "duck" was amongst more normal lookin' ducks at Margaret River, Western Australia.

So that's our pictures for Monday....hope you enjoyed them! Hope you could study them very hard like, and work out the FAKE!!! More tomorrow, including FIND the FAKE!!


  1. Hey Rubie!

  4. Well done! We're going to have to depend on the internet to get pictures because our camera is just an aim-n-shoot. We always thought Lyrebirds liked blue...
