He either did it for a lark or he's raven mad.

Think its punny, Blue Diamond? Well toucan play at that little game! :8

I feel sorry for the poor busted bustard, who is obviously not chicken although he must feel a goose, what with the owls of derision he's probably hearing.

Seriously though, bird-smuggling is no mynah offence. The beaks dispense swift justice for these fowl crimes; he could get ten years or moa, so it's hardly a case of 'I'll just duck down to Australia for a gander with a couple of illegal birds puffin out my trouser legs'. I hope he does get ostrich in prison and samples life as a jailbird.

It sticks in macaw that these guys think they can do this then just wing it.

Pigeon in the trousers?? Don't birds do serious damage to those "jet engines" -- loses thrust and brings them down?

I wonder how Captain Sullenberger would handle this?

Coo!

Those on lofty perches should just let him out, he'll go on the next flight home anyway. ;)

Sorry, I just had to get just the one fish pun in there.... :oh:

He's lucky he didn't get his eggs pecked.

I suppose he wanted to go one better than being a mere budgie smuggler . . .

The above has all been very well thought out. But seriously, why? Can't you just about get pigeons anywhere you want, they are just flying rats.

Maybe the pigeons were trying to smuggle him? :8
