Giving the Bird(s)

 Today we're showing our top birds for chasing.

 Number 1 on our hit list are ravens, crows or currawongs.....any of these large,  black birds.  We always go after them--they tease us!

 Magpies are great to chase except during nesting time when they chase us--and everyone else.
 Ibis--scavenger birds.  They're very common.
 Apostle birds--a family lives near the local school.  
 Galahs are the most common.  Huge flocks feed on the grass at the local sports field.  It's fun to make them fly away.
The cockatoos.  They're sometimes in low bushes or amongst the galahs.

Even Roxy is an accomplished bird chaser.

Kendra didn't want to eat this morning--not even her tablet wrapped in cheese.  We tried peanut butter, but she wasn't interested.  The Milko came and went without any noise.  She just curled up on the concrete and refused to move.
Again, we wondered if it was time.  But we're happy to report that by lunch, she ate some chicken and barked at a family walking past the house!
Then ate a normal meal for dinner.


  1. Hi girls, mum is very familiar with all those except the Apostle Birds, which look a little like fluffy owls!!

    Worried for you Kendra! You are a bit up and down, be strong my love!
