A Post from Jack


“My name’s Jack, I’m seven.  I am talking and mum is typing this blog post from me.  We went to the Desert Park.  It was in Alice Springs.  I really liked the Desert Park because it had lots of animals.  Some were endangered animals like: Bilby, Mala and Bettong Mouse.  We saw lots of birds.  We saw a Bird of Prey show and I really liked it.  We saw kangaroos, they were Red Kangaroos.  We heard an Aboriginal talk and we got to see the medicines they used.  We saw the Wedge Tailed Eagle and got to have a photo with him.  His name was Labelle.  He got his name from a cattle station up in Darwin.  We saw coconuts that were named bush coconuts.  They are a type of wasp’s home and they have a grub inside that tastes nice and the flesh on the inside tastes like coconut.  Man – I should have got a picture of a bush coconut!  I didn’t really mean to say that but mum just typed it in anyway.  I took some photos on my underwater camera that my grandparents gave me – it actually works out of the water  Do you think that’s enough for this post?? Mummmm!!!  I hope you enjoy my photos.”

    Hello Jack! I loved reading your post about the Desert Park and hearing that you enjoyed it a lot. We still remember the Wedge Tail Eagle and his performance, it was amazing. Is that a Curlew I can see in one of your photos? Keep up your blogging Jack! Have Fun ! xx
