I LOVE IT!!!
O boy, what a funny bird. I never saw him before, it's easy to understand where his name came from. Thanks
If any of you play duplicate or rubber bridge, you might have heard of Victor Mollo and his humorous book series called "Bridge in the Menagerie" that have animals playing bridge. Each animal represents a different personality trait. The Secretary Bird is one such character. He knows the laws of the game perfectly and insists that they are applied to the letter, always to his own downfall. Others include the Hideous Hog, the Rueful Rabbit, Oscar the Owl, Timothy the Toucan and Charlie the Chimp.
Thanks pg.jojosmom - apparently they eat mice, lizards, snakes, mongoose, hares etc & they kill them by stomping on then to break their necks or spines!!Thanks Mary!! he can grow to 1.3mt or 4feet tall!Thanks tex!!
