I have posted some rather sad news today – the death of the 20 year old Peregrine Falcon, Princess, who was the anchor of the Manitoba Falcon Recovery and the spread of HPAI.
So it is time for a little fun and giggles.
New Zealanders love their flightless parrot, The Kakapo, just about as much or perhaps more than they do their Albatross. It is breeding season for these highly endangered birds. There are scorecards!
So yesterday, Nora, who has been breeding and raising chicks since 1981 mated with two males, one for 83 minutes. Seriously.
The New Zealand Herald did such a great report that it should do all the talking.
Thank you so much for joining me. Sorry for sending out four posts. This is the last! We needed some fun.
