Big heavy bird

Thu Jun 4, 2009

This afternoon, in the trees in front of our house, two big birds were sitting in the trees. Because of their weight, the branches where they sat were bending down. They were quite slow, not like small birds which normally jump and look around nervously all the time. These birds turned their heads slowly. Sometimes they began looking slowly down, to then jump to a lower branch. Other times they jumped sideways repeatedly on one branch, until the weight was too much for the tip of the branch. They ate (or at least scratched) part of the outside of this eucalyptus tree. They seemed to be a couple, probably an old one. It didn’t look like they just met, but anyways when one flew to another tree, the other followed.
