Ornithological bickering and squabbling

Three paradise ducks but spot the shag

Three paradise ducks but spot the shag


The paradise ducks were not at all thrilled by the shag in their old pine tree (you can just see the silhouette of the shag amongst the pine needles but it is about 20 metres up the tree) and were attempting to move it on by verbal abuse. The bellbirds don’t like the tui (one tui, two tui – we have many tui but they don’t have an s to make them plural). Everybody hates poor old Hedwhig the Morepork and the tui will persist in lording it over pretty much every other feathered inhabitant of the garden, including each other. Clearly these birds do not believe in peaceful co-existence.
