  1. This is a really good-looking bird. One wonders why evolution did what it did. But then, one wonders thus for almost the entire avian population !!! 🙂

    • You have to take into consideration that they are descendants of the dinosaurs and they have had millions of years of evolution to perfect whatever would help them survive, we are the newbies in this world and being accused of destroying the planet in one century! I grin now :-)))

      • Not much to grin about there, HJ, because it’s all true. What horrible creatures we are. How we give ourselves over to greed and power …

      • I agree with you about that. It’s horrible how deep we’re falling. It’s only going to get worse!
        You know well how it’s going to end up, a big war and later, after all the suffering we’ll start over from page one. Only more stupid, we don’t learn from the past. 😦
