Monday Morning Wake-up Call: Put on your Pretty Bonnet and Let’s Go!

Southern Red Bishop Bird 1


The Southern Red Bishop is common in wetlands and grassland in Africa south of the Equator. North of the Equator, it is replaced by the Northern Red Bishop or Orange Bishop.  It is 10–11 centimetres long and has a thick conical bill.  It feeds on insects and seeds.

  1. OMG, that makes me think of the little plastic rain bonnet my grandmother used to wear! Serious flashback! Thx for the giggle , David! Get out there and make it a good one, and steer clear of that spaghetti Bolognese….. 😉


  2. You’re always good for a chuckle on a Monday morning!


  3. Tres chic – though it almost look like s/he is daring you to think otherwise. Have a good day

    Looked at first like a cuddly toy.


  5. Looks more like a helmet to me! Funny.


  6. GM Dave, your Monday morning posts always make me smile and help me take the world a little less seriously! Thanks and have a awesome day!


  7. What a beautiful bird, David… Such a lovely bonnet… In fact, I thought it was a little joke when I first saw it, only to realise it is a part of their plumage… Delightful…!


  8. That poor bird…doomed to go through it’s life with a bonnet that will never, ever go away. Lol! The top photo is something it might be totally insulted by…if it knew. You’re beautiful anyway, you poor bird.

  10. Those birds don’t look very happy in their bonnets. 🙂 I wouldn’t either.


  11. Sorry, this immediately popped in my head.


  12. Beautiful girl, very nice shot.
