Don’t ask me how or why but a group of guinea fowl are called a ‘confusion’.


Thanks for that Derek. It is confusing why there are so many of them roaming around up on the tablelands here. We have seen them in a number of places and they don't seem to be owned by anyone.

We used to use the November grass when we had our big finch aviary; they used to really like it for nest building.

Thanks for the photograph Jeff. Yes that the November grass I was talking about that we use to give to the finches.
I cannot see the finches carrying around the tumble grass in Dave's photograph.
It would be a real pain trying to that mess up Dave.
regards Kev.

In the garden I have an old horse drawn plough as an ornament and the double bars regularly plonk themselves on it.

Managed to get this photo this morning of the pair building the nest.  They are still carting straw in there. When I see them carrying small feathers I will know it is getting finished

Hi Derek
What a great photo. I think the finch on the left would be the
mom she looks like she would be ready to start lying eggs.
They look very healthy What I remember they only take a day to build a nest.
It would be great that they keeping back back into your garden when they want to breed.

Kev, I haven’t seen them for a while, only these two, but we regularly had a small flock of up to about a dozen come in to feed on the seed I put out.

I think you are right about the female. She is looking very plump.

Female is the one with the round top head. Male has the flatter head.
