European Souslik ...

... a good time to see in Kiskunság (posted:20/07/2014)

The European ground squirrel (Spermophilus citellus), also known as the European souslik is a rodent and important prey of the Saker. You can see this funny diurnal animal on our Kiskunság tour during summer. Not surprisingly, the area where the ground squirrels live is rich in raptor species (e.g. Saker, Imperial Eagle).

Bird Jokes

Magician and his parrot

A magician was performing on cruise ship and each night while performing his pet parrot keeps saying quotits up his sleeve "its in his pocket". "Its in his shoe". "In his pants" etc and the magician was loosing his patience.

One night while performing his tricks the ships boilers blew and the ship sank, the lucky magician was able to grab onto a ships table and float on the sea for a few days. The parrot in the mean time seemed non plussed and was looking quizzically at the magician for a few days whilst drifting.

On the 4th day the parrot looks at his master and says "I give up... what did you do with the ship?"

Old man got drunk

An old man was sitting on a bench in the mall when a young man with spiked hair came over and sat down beside him. The boy's hair was yellow and green and orange and purple. He had black make up around his eyes. The old man just stared at him.
With an attitude, the boy said, "What's the matter, old man, haven't you ever done anything wild in your life?"
The old man answered, "Well yes, actually, I have. I got drunk once and had sex with a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son.
