Hey - in yesterdays post we asked if you could "spot the FAKE", but obviously that was real difficult, because no-one guessed it, or were so unsure, that you were too scared to guess. Now concentrate everybuddy........you CAN do it........... spot the FAKE today!!! No zoo shots today - these were all out in the open wilds!
PICTURE A: This beautiful pigeon is called a Wompoo (really, honest) and mum thinks it's the most precarious nest she has ever seen. Look at that big bird and the frail lookin' nest! Imagine bein' the egg!!!!!!
PICTURE B: Dad feedin' a hungry Peacock just out of Darwin, Northern Territory. He looks hungry huh?
PICTURE C: A well behaved Galah outside a roadhouse.
PICTURE D: This little Kingfisher is high on mum's favourites list. She loves the way it's shaped like a Kookaburra, but is smaller and has beautiful blue colourings. This one flew down and sat on a light fitting of their caravan site in the Daintree Rainforest area.
PICTURE E: Again in the tropics, these little birds were in the trees - they are Metallic Starlings, see they have vibrant red eyes, and the black feathers have a lovely shiny, greeny, chameleon colour.
PICTURE F: The Australian Black Swan with two babies. This was taken at The Entrance, coastal N.S.W.
PICTURE G: A gorgeous vibrant Australian King Parrot.
PICTURE H: The unusual Helmeted Friar, check out the head! Again found in the Australian tropics.
OK - that's day two taken care of. Hope you enjoyed our birds! More tomorrow! Bye for now.
