Bird Stories

Here are two heartening tales of antipodean bird life. The first comes from my daughter in New Zealand, a country with an endearing tendency to make stars of its animals - from Happy Feet the stranded penguin, to Shrek the runaway sheep and the frisky Kakapo who became an online sensation. This story of the greeting of the Godwits is very charming (and somehow very New Zealand). I wish we rang the bells to welcome the returning swifts every spring...
And here's a funny tale of escaped talking birds enhancing Australia's urban soundscape.


  1. The Australian story is hilarious, thanks for sharing!
