Posted: Mon Nov 23, 2009 7:00 am Post subject: Names!
I have no names for my three new kakarikis. Two males and one female. "Kaka" in Swedish is cookie so I thought about naming them "Cookie" in three different languages, but that seems a little bit... boring?
Napoleon...well you have ssen a fully mature male king, the red breast
And he stands proud on his perch, alloff, above all
He will not come down to you, If you want to feed him, you have to go to him.
His body language, sort of says..."yep want a bit of that"
But unlike his son Bob or any of our tame or semi tame avairy birds, or any semi tame bird I know of...wave a peanut and they are down on it in a sec, Not Napolean.. you have to take it to him. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
My Kakis are called AJ (female) had her about 4 years just laid 3 eggs.
Sarah (Male) had him around 2 years, partner to AJ.
Fred ( sex unknown ) Had him around 3 years, Call him male as hes very big with a large broad beak.
Sammy ( sex unknown) had him about 4 weeks very naughty but will fly to my finger.
tane..that doesnt really have a direct translation, maori culture thought of themselves as part of the mother nature gods and the closest translation it sort of referes to a person or identity
kofi think you mean kowhai (wh is a soft F sound)
Means yellow and is a semi deciduos tree that has sweet peas like flowers. The majority of our native tres have whate flowers, a few less have pale blue, and a handfull have yellow and red. Hence colours can also be a plant or a animal.
Maori is a very primative language so in most cases sylibles, like japanese, tend to be 2 letters
The Aussie have a cool comedian called Rove...he loves a NZ town name
Whakatane...use the info above and you will see why _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
