This Post Is For The Birds!

No, not The Birds.

It’s National Bird Day today! So let’s celebrate with some Sooty Owls at the Taronga Zoo, eh? Bless their sooty little heart-shaped faces!

[Like how they swivel their little heads around. -Ed]

Terri D. and her beagle, Schnitzel, attending to a finch, who stunned herself flying into the patio door. Terri held her for a long time while she recovered and eventually flew away.

When Thar Be Thorns…

Stay light and above it all.

But, if you get pricked, you’ll fly all around and make that squeaky balloon noise and that’s just fun for everyone.

Down (in) the Drain

Every day, Wilbur the duckling gets a bath, and he takes to it like… a… thing that, um… a duck might… enjoy… a lot. There’s probably some catchier way to put that.

Da, Da, DA!

Some folks can be so dramatic. Every little thing sets them off.

Take this owl for instance. She just found out that the cafeteria is out of pudding.


Or this kitty. One minute, everything seems just fine. Nomming some grass while humming a little kitty song, until someone off camera shushes him.

And then there is this tiny rhino. Apparently, for her, the only reaction is OVER reaction.
