Great pictures! We don't get anything as exotic as that in our backyard, though one time we spotted a couple of wild boar peeking through the wire part of the fence in back (they have a habit of wandering through our town at night). Another time we had some parrots, that somehow managed the 38-km flight from Stuttgart and stopped to drink out of our pond. About thirty years ago some parrots escaped from the local zoo and bred, so now Stuttgart has a "wild" parrot population. The black swans are gorgeous, though I have to admit that I'm afraid of swans. Years ago we were at Neuschwanstein ("crazy King Ludwig's Fairytale Castle), and let our dog run ahead of us while we were walking on the grounds. He was attacked and badly injured by swans (and I'm talking about an 80 lb. boxer, not a Yorkie). All he did was stop at the edge of the lake to watch, and the swans came out of the water and went after him. He needed over 30 stitches, and we got bitten, too, trying to get them off him. Ever since then I've given swans and geese a wide berth. Are emus aggressive?
