Forget Angry Birds , We Have Fire Birds !!!


This is a video clip I took when I was on the Adelaide River Cruise with my brother. As I mentioned in my last postย  the Territory is home to a species of birds who like to spread fire by picking up burning twigs and dropping them in another area. Check out the commentaryย  , these birds really are cheeky little buggers …

    Very interesting commentary! And it looked like the birds were going to take your camera away!

    • It was a bit like that Alfred Hitchcock movie ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. Did you hear Todd laughing in the background ?! Love you xox

  2. I had a hard time understanding the commentary, but those birds are bit like you crocs with wings, are they not? Take cover!

    • I probably should of put sub titles on it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Basically the birds prey on wildlife when they are escping the fire and when the fire goes out they pick up a smouldering stick and drop it in another location to start a new fire , meaning more food for them ! He also was saying they don’t have them down in the southern states which is just as well as that is where most of the wheat farms etc are . up here a lot of the landscape is to rough to farm so bush fires don’t cause as much damage. They seem harmless to humans although maybe small ones should watch out !!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Xx Kel
