There are usually lots of birds at the Sports Ground.
These are Galahs.
Roxy always stalks them.
She moves in very slowly.....
She pretends she isn't interested in them.....
Then moves closer.....
And finally she makes her move!
just as she's ready to pounce,
Bella or I charge passed her and make the birds fly away!
|Daisy races in to chase the birds!|
She hates that!
We've never seen those lovely birds before so we looked them up and seems they are rose-breasted cockatoos. It's a good game stalking and chasing...Annie plays the same game chasing the seagulls on our beach!ReplyDelete
Ha ha we know that one. My crew often ruin my squirrel stalking the same way. No patience I say. Never heard of a galah. I stalk crows. Have a terrific Tuesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
That looks like a fun game! Those are big birdies!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
Woof! Woof! Pretty birds. Yah I do the same thing too. Lots of Golden Woofs, SugarReplyDelete
MOL MOL MOLReplyDelete
Bella and Daisy that is just what sisters do to sisters. Too funny.
You bewared Roxy might call the great hunter Ernie in for assistance.
hugs Madi your BFFF
Oh, I had to laugh - Roxy has the same approach to galahs as I have to crows (well, ravens realy, I guess) - I stalk them and try very very hard to catch them but strangely enough, I haven't managed it yet!! Great photographs!ReplyDelete
What fun... Exercise for allReplyDelete
What a bunch of galas! You know those sell for thousands of dollars here in the states....that is probably about 25,000 dollars they were chasing! And to think Aussie farmers consider then to be pests ;)ReplyDelete
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...... You had us laughing so hard!ReplyDelete
You let Roxy do all the hard work for ya!
pretty birds! I would have chased them away too.ReplyDelete
Good job stalking and chasing. Love Roxy's "I'm not interested" look.ReplyDelete
Hi FOXY ROXY.... guess what???? I (YOUR ERNIE) chase birds TOO... and last week I caught one... fur just a second... and then I let it go.ReplyDelete
This is just ONE MORE THINGY that YOU and I have in common!!
Bella should NOT do that to you. She should spend her time watchin TV and lookin at her Calendar Guy!!!! I'm just sayin!
87 Bazillion SNIFFS,
Oh Roxy, you almost got one! Our boys Bill and Forest along with Azule love to chase the birdies too. We have doves that nest in our pine tree every year and they are watched verrryyy closely.ReplyDelete
I'm more mature now (or should that be "not") but when I was younger, They put out food for the wild birds. My self appointed job was to protect the wild bird food from the wild birds.ReplyDelete
What a team!ReplyDelete
Bart and Ruby
Roxy did Bella teach you a thing or two?ReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
That looks fun!ReplyDelete
BOL - I do the same thing :)ReplyDelete
That is an excellent game! Good job stalking Roxy - sorry that some dogs (ahem) scattered the birds before you were ready to pounce!ReplyDelete
I do that in my back yard too! It is so fun to make them all take off.ReplyDelete
OMD!! What a great game!! I do that with the evil tree rats!ReplyDelete
Go Daisy Goooooo! Tell Roxy to eat your dust.ReplyDelete
Sweet William The Scot
Muahaha! I love it! :-D Birdies are too fun (but cats are better to chase!)!!ReplyDelete
That looks like such fun! The grass would be easier to run on than our snow!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
Sneaky! Bella, I have a question for you on my blog...ReplyDelete
Chasing birds is a good thing to do. If you co-ordinated your attack maybe you could catch one! Lee and PhodReplyDelete
You've got lots of birds there. Not fair that they can fly and we can't.ReplyDelete
Good to see summer. Deefor
Hope you say Yes to Oskar...He'll be a great date for the BallReplyDelete
Oh boy a bird chase!! Also, we think you should say yes to Oskar too. He looks quite fetching in his tie.ReplyDelete
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
We both love chasing galahs tooReplyDelete
Roxy...you are so, so cute...and you remind me of Zippy. Bird chasing is a great sport.ReplyDelete
