Ken usually finds flora and fauna a bit elusive. But not this time. Cacti. Mind you, it can hardly run away

More feathered friends

June 4th, 2011

More feathered friends from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Parrot or pigeon? Actually parrots – Galahs (Latin name Cacatua roseicapilla, always handy to know if you’re ever in Ancient Rome). By all accounts, not very bright. Terrible road sense. Frequently getting run over. Hence the Aussie slang term – Galah – for someone who’s intellectually challenged. And I thought it was a type of apple…

Incidentally, if you’re impressed by my knowledge of these feathered friends, don’t be. I’ve a very informed source. Someone who knows about these things. He’d suggested the slang usage a bit harsh. Or as he put it, like saying someone was a bit Irish. But obviously not in front of Gerry Adams.

[With especial thanks to "Michael" for the advice and dry wit. Currently on the run from some nice chaps from Northern Island..]

Feathered friend from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Feathered friend. Keen to share my sandwich. Absolutely no idea what it is. Either my lunch or the local fauna. Bird obviously. That much even I’d grasped.
