    1. Thanks Oddfeel they sure don,t have a lot going for them in the good looks department, also very noisy when they are feeding in large numbers. Posted 6 years ago
  2. I love watching these birds in groups.. endless entertainment.. It's difficult to look at them and not see dinosaur-heads. This looks like a youngish one. Posted 6 years ago, modified 6 years ago
