BURUNG PALING LAJU


Tahukah anda burung apakah yang paling laju didunia?

Pemenangnya tidak lain tidak bukan ; helang peregrine yang sedang menjunam. Ia bukan sahaja burung paling laju, malah binatang paling laju ketika menjunam.

Pernahkah anda menonton perlumbaan kereta laju?Setiap pemandu akan cuba memandu dengan laju demi untuk menjadi juara perlumbaan.Pernahkah anda terfikir kelajuan km/j yang dicapai oleh pemandu lumba kereta?. Kereta ‘formula one’ boleh memecut sehingga 350 km/j

Bagi helang ini,mereka  boleh memecut lebih dari 300 km/j. Bukankah ini mengkagumkan?

DRUNKEN LORIKEET

WHEN THE WET SEASON approaches in Darwin and the mercury starts to climb, locals often turn to drink. But for wildlife carers it's the drunken birds - red-collared lorikeets to be exact - that are causing problems.

Carers in Darwin say they are bracing for hundreds of sick birds, as the annual 'drunk lorikeet' season rolls around. It happens each year towards the end of the dry season and the beginning of the wet in October-November.

Experts say they are not sure if the lorikeets are actually drunk, but they do have tell-tale symptoms. "They exhibit odd behaviour like falling over or difficulty flying [and] they keep running into things," says Darwin vet Dr Stephen Cutter from The Ark Animal Hospital.
