There's a biologist up in Squarebanks (my hometown) who told me that I made him late for work when I posted a pic of a Little Corella Cockatoo and asked folks to identify it.
So I figured, heck! If it worked once, then let's try it again!
BTW, he's been the only one of the new winners to actually request specific wallpapers or screensavers (BTW did you get them in the email I sent???). Yes, Ishmael Melville, I know you've requested some more wallpapers, but since you gave me carte-blanche to pick the pics (and my nose) that means I get to find the *perfect* shots just for you :)
Now for this challenge I'm even going to give you a hint. Aren't I nice?
They all lay eggs.
Wasn't that a great hint?
Here's the three thingies to figure out what they heck they are. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU AUSSIE AND EX-AUSSIE WHO KNOW ALL THESE: Please refrain from identifying them in a comment for a day or so. This is so you smart kids can give the other kids a chance to answer! *giggle*
Aussie critter #1 (this should be easy if you've been paying attention):
Aussie critter #2 (getting a bit harder):
Aussie critter #3 (no, this is not a special effect picture):
Remember, they all lay eggs.
Oh, before you go, I've got a modified conversation with WP to share with you. See, the other day on the way back home, I needed to stop at a store to get a bag of sunflower seeds for the little darlings in the backyard. Remember, YT is yours truly, me.
*YT plops bag of sunflower seeds on the checkout counter*
CG (Checkout Girl): Hi, is that all for today?
YT: Yep, no worries.
CG: Ok, it's five-thirty.
YT (without skipping a beat OR BLINKING looks up at the wall clock): Actually, I think it's a little closer to six.
CG: Ummmmmmm... *smiles nervously*
YT: Yeah, that was a bad one.
CG: Bad, very bad.
