But where are the birds from Uganda? Coming at a tortoise like pace? ūüėĚ

 

They will come, in due time. Right now the report has the priority (and letting @Galana to post ahead helps me with my "bulbuls" and "sparrows" :D!

 

The Hare is newer moving at The Tortoise pace! It moves faster ... or it stands still :lol:

Quite right.

And then we will have the pleasure of seeing all of the photos from Uganda ( and a rapidly rising BY tally) which will let us all pretend that we are on safari instead of scratching the walls at home.

I had a feeling that your photos were too good to be true :P.

@pedro maia, is this to be a challenge of a sort :wacko:? Are you inviting me to a "photo the bird duel"? OK I am accepting it. We will meet at the location of your choice (but I am giving you the advantage of the home turf).

Gears of each one choice. The challenger has to pay for the drinks and the transfers. The winner has to pay for the dinner.  Other rules as will be jointly agreed upon. I desperately need a good excuse to visit Portugal when the borders will open again :):D

 

Just to make it clear: I have no right to put my name on any of Zvezda's photos! That is a rule strictly monitored by SWMBO :wub:

Alex, a joke isn‚Äôt funny when you have to explain it, just think that you aren‚Äôt the ‚Äúphotoshopper‚ÄĚ here¬†;).

 

And I won’t challenge anyone for a photo contest, it’s less embarassing and painful for me if we jump right to part where I pay the dinner :lol:.

Curses, I can't get a flight. :angry: but once the curtain of doom is lifted then we should make a plan.

It is already from returning from Uganda that I am socialising only with Zvezda, Tanja, TV and internet. It looks like my daily walks will not be done similar to the prisoners ... in rounds around the neighbour's lawn :(. Only good thing is the return of the Spring, and the birds :).

I have not seen anything similar in T&C of the original invitation :). But I do understand the current crisis situation, therefore I will keep the invitation as an "open" until better times. Stay safe, all of you, and stay home. I mean inside the home.

Back to birds. Sudden and unexpected spell of cold weather is keeping me away from the balcony, so here is one bird from a week ago.
