Bah, Bah, Black Sheep, and MORE Black Birds?

I do believe mom was slacking off on her Big World Assignment to Holland and Germany, and she is now slacking off on helping me post her Big World Report!
And the material she brought back for me is not up to par.
Bah, Bah, Black Sheep.  Back in Holland, mom said these sheep wanted to be my friends.  They look like they may be Suffolk Sheep.  I like Sheep, so this is acceptable, I guess.

I think this might be a sort of Raven, but I am not sure.  Ravens can sometimes be associated with scary spooky things like Halloween.  He was sitting above a sign that said "Verboten", which means "Forbidden!"
I don't know if I really want him to be my friend....those claws look a bit ominous!

This is a European Magpie, and this is an interesting bird.
Did you know that the European Magpie is one of the few creatures in the world that can recognize itself in a mirror??  The only others animals that can, are all of the great apes, macaques, bottlenose dolphins, orcas, and elephants!

JB:  This is it, mom? 
Mom:  It was really misty and rainy when I was on this Big World Assignment, so I was not able to get you very good pictures this time.  I am sorry, JB!  I only have one more installment of the Holland Big World Assignment after this, and it involves Bacon.

To be continued.....

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK here, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

When we read about the raven we thought you said his claws looked omniverous. Ha!!

If you are going to write about bacon we may skip the next post - we would rather see pigs please :)

Oh and we posted a pic of pigs on Misery's blog too. A big pig and a little piglet. Cute.

PS I am going to write a follow-up about that evil cat soon!

I think maybe you are right to stay away from those huge claws.. The sheep look friendly though.. Hugs GJ xx

I like ravens. They have so mmm...clever look...

What is interesting about magpies (it's my personal opinion) -they live near the roads. We've seen different times how they teach they "kids" to fly. They live very numerous near the expressway we often take.

The sheep on the left of the photo is wearing some kind of blue ribbons? Did he win a contest?

So neat your Mom goes on a lot of Big World Assignments, even if they are not up to par.
