As we were chatting with friends in the street in front of our house I noticed this grey blob in our neighbor’s tree. I looked at it for a while trying to figure out what it was. I interrupted all the conversations asking out loud what was in the tree.
Can you see it? Better yet, do you know what it is? Here’s a close up:
It is a bird the size of a small penguin. It just sat there all calm and peaceful. I think it might be a pet. I waited for him to lift his wings so I could see if they were a different color underneath. He just sat turning his head every once in a while. His beak reminds me of the kookaburras we saw in Australia. But this guy is much bigger and not as colorful, at least from this angle.
Anybody got a clue?
