Kangaroo Siting

Posted by Anne Marie Serrano on April 9, 2008

I’ve been walking around Canberra almost every day. There are different birds here. You don’t see many sparrows, pigons, or starlings but rather white (very noisy) parrots, these black and white magpies-I think- and colorful parrots. The black swans were a real surprise.

But yesterday I saw my first kangaroo since we got here. I was walking in a nature park – much like Tilton Park for those of you in Northern California – lots of walking paths thru treed areas and grassy hills. I saw something out of the corner of my eye, just a slight movment. Well there it was. It blended in much like deer in fact they are almost the same color as deer. It wasn’t frightened by me-they probably see lots of people since they are surrounded by city. When a dog started barking about 8 to 10 of them ran away. I never even saw the other ones. When you look at the pictures you’ll have to click on them to enlarge it so you can see them.

It was pretty exciting. Or by the way we had a kangaroo roast for dinner about a week ago – very tasty, low fat, pretty cheap – I hope it wasn’t one of these guys mates.
