Although I have a very suitable bird name for a wildlife and animal artist, the world of birds is fascinating! How do swallows work out to come back to our barn every year from Africa – their tiny bodies making this flight despite cruel countries catching them as they fly. Why do Flamingoes look as if their knees are on back to front – fascinating stuff! Although the Vulture is such an ugly looking bird, I am sort of fond of them for that reason. They are the refuse collectors of the wild world and play an important role in some religious funeral ceremonies.
