Give us The Bird - 23rd Nov

Hi all,

We are still motoring through Sarge's "Give Us The Bird" event, and are now up to Day 3.

I've been posting mum's bird pics from her hollingdays, and I slip in a FAKE bird, asking if you want to study the pics carefully and "find the FAKE"! In post two, there were some successful observations, but it's really hard, so good luck!!

PICTURE A: The Blue Faced Honeyeater. Hey who can blame them for liking HONEY!! Yummers!

PICTURE B: Various birds travelling in a flock, pictured in Queensland.

PICTURE C: The Australian Bush Turkey. These are real funny lookin'. Note the almost bald red head and a wrinkly ring of yellow skin around the neck. As these birds age the yellow bit get bigger and kinda hangs down. I think they are ugly!!

PICTURE D: Here they were at Steve Irwin's "Australia Zoo". This is a demonstration of the trained and friendly Macaws who put on a show in the stadium. The peeps are the handlers. Mum has a HUGE soft spot for Macaws.

PICTURE E: This is a second Macaw that flew around in the people stands, just over their heads. So awesome!

 PICTURE F: A wonderful Rooster and "his" Hens walking around in another "farm friendly" caravan park.

PICTURE G: The Noisy Minor. I guess they make a lot of noise. We also say "they make a din" which means the same thing.

PICTURE H: A Pelican on a post. Mum liked that he/she had it's beak open.

We are gettin' through them huh........ did you find the FAKE??? I know it's tough.....

See you for more on the 24th!

    Wow, you have the most amazing birdies ever. My pack really misses that Croc Hunter fellow and the parrots there are really pretty. That flock better watch out, 'cause I don't think those are real lilypads! BOL. Do you eat those turkeys?!? Thanks for another great post, Rubie!!
    Grr and Woof,
