birds

ENTIRE flocks of wild galahs, cockatoos and corellas are learning to talk.

The wild birds are being taught by pet birds that have escaped or been released by their owners and joined the flocks.

"We have had people call us thinking they are going mad or had something put into their drink because they've gone out to look at the flock of birds in their backyard and all the birds have been saying something like: 'Who's a pretty boy then'?" the Australian Museum's naturalist said , "These birds are very smart birds and very social and communication and contact is important between them.

"So the pet bird begins to say things it's been taught by its owner and the rest of the flock learns and starts speaking too, to mimic the pet bird," Mr Robinson said.

"I just hope a pet that's been taught dirty words doesn't join a flock.

G'day mate.
Been over seas, sold the K1200RS, sans BM for a year and just purchased the K1200S last Monday.
Lovely bike but we'll see how the knees cope. Sharlene is still home in Innisfail so I get home every two months or so.
I'm posted to Wagga under sufferance at present.
I'm not sure how much longer I can take this life!

Best wishes Pap.
