See the bird on the very top of the cactus?

My peep thinks it is one of the Thorn Birds from the novel and movie.


My peeps always wanted to meet someone famous. Silly peeps. The Thorn Birds took place in Australia, not Arizona.

  1. It’s sitting on top of a giant thorn, so it must be a thorn bird flown over from the land down under. Xox Xena and Lucy

  2. Good heavens, Bird Friend. The Thorn Birds mini series was in 1983. That’s 36 years ago. Your peeps are ancient.

  3. We think your peep is funny too 😉
    Mum remembers the Thorn Birds 😉 MOL!
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  4. Maybe it is stuck there with a thorn… Yep Thorn Birds remembered here, too.

  5. Oh yes, The Thornbirds. I read the novel many, many years ago. All I remember is that it featured a priest. Hmmm. No way am I reading it again; I don’t remember it being all that good the first time! I like your version much better!

  6. Ma remembers Gma watchin’ that Thornburds movie! She just remembers that she couldn’t watch what she wanted (there were like only 3 channels back then! BOL!), so she skateboarded a LOT that week!
    Abouts that burd, I hope it’s not skewered to that cactus! ouch!

  7. I think it’s a burd-kabob…..skewered and roasting in the sun.

  8. Did it impales itself upon the longest, sharpest thorn? The legend says only a true thorn bird does so “For the best is only bought at the cost of great pain… Or so says the legend.” It is a Fake Thorn Bird ~ Fake News ~ Fake Fake Fake!

  9. Let your silly humans dream their dreams, Kismet. They know you’re the only smart one in the family.

    Have a birdtastic day. My best to your humans. ♥

  10. You probably wouldn’t be able to tell by the temperatures. Perhaps you have a wild admirer, Kismet.

  11. that is too funny!!! One of my Mom’s favorite series was “The Thornbirds” lol

  12. Your peeps are just too funny. You thought you were that close to meeting a celebrity bird. This is great. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

  13. While my peeps ARE rahter ancient, they would not deem to sit upon a catusof any kind!

    Anfd while we don’t know what pawppy knows of the Thorny birdies, petcretary ony recognzes the name, she never saw any of the movie not the tv show. There was a movie, right? Um…we don’t know, we are clueless!

  14. She is remembered and treasured, and I’ve a feeling, not that far away.
