Emperor Penguin

The Emperor Penguin stands three feet tall and weighs 100 pounds.
They feed at sea on squid and fish, and their most deadly enemy is the leopard seal.
The Emperor Penguin is most known for its march. In the autumn the penguins gather in thousands for their march.

After the female lays her egg, she leaves and goes back to the sea to feed. She leaves the male in charge of the egg. She will return when the egg hatches.
The parents will then take care of the chick together. When it is about 5 to 6 months old all the Emperor Penguins gather and they begin their march once more.

Sorry this post took so long with the snow and all I didn't have any time to do a post.

The bird is ------

Cattle Egret.

And By the way the white thing is a not a bovine animal, but that is where the Egret was sitting for the picture. Maybe he doesn't know he is a cattle egret.

Sorry the picture is so small.

Guessing Game.

There are perhaps thousands of birds. We cannot learn them all, nor could I ever do a post on every single one. So I will only do a few of the birds, then insects, and then some special dinosaurs.
But for a little while, we are going to play a guessing game.
I will give you some facts on a bird, and you try to guess what it is. The next day, I will do a picture of it and its name.
So the clues are:
  • There are more then one kind of it's kind,
  • Has long legs,
  • A long yellow bill,
  • Fluffy yellow plumes on it's head and neck,
  • Stands about 2 feet tall,
  • They enjoy being with cattle because cattle attack flies, and they eat flies,
  • The kind that live in the marsh eat frogs fish and other aquatic animals.
  • 3 hundred years ago, they lived only in Africa and Asia, but now live in North and South America, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • And they have very pail blue eggs.
So those are the clues. See is you can figure it out.
