I have a garden full of birds. It is truly a wonders place. I will be buying a book to see what we have here when it comes to wildlife.

I miss that.  As a child growing up in england, if the window was open the morning chorus was so loud you could not sleep....

Funny how we talk about the classic 'Silent Spring', about how it may happen.  I think in most places its already come to pass - we are just become used to the lack of birds and wildlife...  a couple of years ago all the sparrows disappeared from our area (at least) of Toronto.  Sparrows.  I mean they live in the city...

I'm not in Canada, either, but they are still Canadian geese!  Wonder how they'd do in Australia?

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

a little ducks are cute, but when they grow up, they are ugly.

I think the name is wrong: this is actually a Durkey.   It was developed for the Peking christmas dinner market.

Zillions of different birds, rabbits, foxes (though I guess they're considered 'pests'), heaps of snakes (brown, black, all kinds), possums, wallabies (kangaroos too, sometimes)...lots of different wildlife here in the country
