Good afternoon dear Blogger friends. As I popped onto the veranda this morning, I noticed this bird on the lawn. I have heard its call in the past few weeks which is a mixture of harsh and whistled phrases. So I was glad it was in my garden foraging for earthworms in the newly rained-upon grass.
This bird seemed to be quite young. Firstly it still had a slightly yellow gape and secondly it was not at all perturbed that a dog and three cats were on the veranda while a human snapped away at it.
I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen, here
HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
It really is beautiful with all the speckles. I guess it will learn about the critters soon!ReplyDelete
