Bird of the year

20120913-065341.jpg
A good friend of this blog, David Slack, is on a crusade to have his favourite bird, the kokako, enthroned as Bird of the Year by the Forest and Bird Society of New Zealand.

I suggested Angela Merkel and pointed out that the bird’s name sounds hauntingly like the German vernacular for “excrement”
He’s not having a bar of it – it looks like the Lone Ranger and that’s good enough for him.
Go here, birdoftheyear.org.nz/your-vote/24, vote and make him a happy man.

Not that he’s got much to complain about, anyway….
