Grist to the Mill

13 September, 2005


Also read this today, in the Collins Gem book of Birds. It made me laugh. I don't know why, it's not that funny:

Adult: Small (18cm), vocal but secretive and well-camoulaged game bird, smaller than a thrush. Underparts sandy buff, upperparts mottled browns, fawns and chestnuts, white streaked. Watch for broader buff stripes on crown and small black bib o male, otherwise sexes similar. Flies only as a last resort.
