Sunday Stills, The Next Challenge: Things With Wings

Sunday Stills, The Next Challenge: Things With WingsS

I am going to be my students. When I ask them what has wings, they will tell me the feathered kind. Often they don't think outside the square. So I am not going to post any insects or mechanical ones.

Everyday, I feed the birds that come to my garden.

Do search for Western Springs. This is one of my favourite places in Auckland. There you will find more of my feathered friends.

If you like to see an special praying mantis, which is a rare species, do click on

If you like an exciting story about a helicopter, I have one at I shot the police helicopter that was catching a robber and culminating in an innocent bystander shot and killed. Do helicopters have wings? Are propellers considered wing? No they don't, I was just thrilled that day that I witnessed such an exciting news item.

Of course I love the Silkie chicken photo, but I also like the black and white crow-like bird...can you tell me what it is?

I always enjoy the stories that go along with your posts! Yesterday I visited our little rural library and they were giving away a lot of books about NZ that someone donated but they did not want, so I took them all!
