I made that last bit up.If you would like to learn more VERY REAL facts like this about some of Australia's most common backyard birds, this is the book for you. I mean, who doesn't want to know what bok, bok, bok means in chicken? Or how often a budgerigar poops?A handy first field guide packed full of fascinating facts (some of them are even true) about Australia's most common backyard birds.
