Birdie Ballet~

Birdies are ballet masters.

Forget the plie’, birdies are en pointe,

and excel at the grand battement!

They extend their limbs,

with precise acumen.

Even the goosies get into the game!

Cheers to you from Oz’s high stepping hoofers~

Prima Ballerinas in order of appearance: Australian Wood Duck, Masked Lapwing, Cape Barren Goose

The Lizard of Oz~

Meet the Australian Water Lizard. They like to climb trees and drop down on rivers and lakes to hunt. They can remain submerged for up to 90 minutes. Males can reach up to 3 feet in length.

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore….”

How adorable is this Noisy Miner chick?

Masked Lapwings are one of the reasons I so love birds.

Who else but a bird could have a face like this?

There is the Australian White Ibis,

the gregarious Australian Magpie,

always assertive Silver Gull,

and shy and lovely Australian Wood Duck.

We are on the move now, exploring new places, so please excuse me when I am less present than I wish I could be.

Cheers to you from magical Oz~
