Here are a couple of cheeky fellas who I see hanging around down my street:



Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae, a.k.a. the bush pigeon or kukupa (or kereru if you are not from the North Island).



Traditionally, their feathers were used by Maori to make cloaks, but nowadays they are protected birds. They are substantially larger than boring old ordinary pigeons. They even hopped down onto an adjacent fence to get a closer look at me, but were scared away by a Maori woman driving past in a car who stopped to ask: "what are those birds?"

Wild Turkey is the sighting rampage in Sacramento as of late. They are stopping traffic, hanging at the shopping malls and performing fly-bys at cars on country roads.



We would rather see this...

Hey Vamp, I had 6 in my front yard on Thursday. I have never seen turkeys wandering the neighborhood before. Sign of the apocalypse....?

Vamp, send those turkeys my way - maybe they can help with spider control. This is not the biggest spider I have ever seen, but I'm pretty sure he's the biggest one I've ever seen IN MY SHOWER!

OMG...that spider is scary.

Darilyn...Sandy & I saw a big tom hanging out at David's Bridle by the Galleria...probably there for his tux fitting. She drove up next to him, rolled down the window and he went into quite a rant...lol.

You guys have any idea how much it cost to have a mocking bird
pose atop your 9 ft Tiki ?
You know, I spare no expense to bring these pic to you.

This has been a tough summer for my lizards.
Here you can see the female has lost her tail,
and her daughter has lost her left arm clear to the shoulder.
Her man has had it up to here & only
comes around occasionally.
I knew this would be important to you guys.

we call these parrots 28's because part of their song sounds like they're saying 28.



taken at a mates place today after work, a few miles from my house.
