Wishin’ everyone a ‘appy St. Patrickâ€™s Day even if yer are not Oirish, as if it really matters on dis ‘oliday! â™£
Wanted to share a picture we were able to capture recently of the rare St. Patrick’s Day bird.Â Birdwatchers have spent their entire life chasing this elusive little fellow with no luck. (St. Patrick’s Day pun intended! :))
He is tall in stature, usually 5-7 inches but very thin and wiry.Â This bird loves to tease with his high pitched squawk which has been said to sound eerily like the laugh of a child.Â He is extremely quick and agile, most only catch a glimpse as he flies off.Â Also, his green appearance allows him to camouflage himself very easily in the green of trees, bushes and plants.Â This one was an even rarer specimen with the feathered topknot that looks strangely like a stocking cap.Â Enjoy, gran’ day! ~M
‘appy St Patty’s Day to yer, too! ‘ave a gran’ day! 😆
Fun post, Mark! Hope you have had a celebratory day!
If Carne Asada is Irish 🙂 then yes we celebrated! Thanks for stopping by Christy, hope you had a great day too!
Does this bird like Guiness? I’m looking for a bird that lives in the south of France…
I think you might find him there, but Guiness? Not sure about that.
