Spring commeth and the squawky babies

The first of the spring babies has arrived at the bird park today and, like all babies, she's out there knee deep in food squawking away trying to get her mother to feed her. Well,she's not literally knee deep in food but it's a better image. And Charlie the Crow just dropped in for breakfast. The left over spring rolls were a big hit, everything but the carrots. Birds don't like carrots.

I had to Google birds' knees, and I found out they have a joint in the approximate same place, though higher in relation to the rest of the legs than human knees are. As in cats and dogs, the "backwards knee" we see is their ankle. And **bonus** I also found a bunch of people arguing about that on the Internet. I love the Internet. And the secret word is ffibles. (But I couldn't read the number, so I refreshed it, and got amiline. Am I lyin'?

Good god. That's their ankle? I never knew that. Wow. And the ankle is waay up there? Whew. My head is spinning. But this is under debate? Of course.


What's that you say about bird's knees?

Of course. The backwards birds knee is strictly a theory, like chicken lips and snake hips.
