Behemoth and Waxy Balls
The big fella on the left, who looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, is called Behemoth. He lives in the wild around Brisbane Avenue in Canberra, the capital of Australia.
He could be 38 years old. He could also be 60 years old. But judging by the way he carries on, bullying everyone outta the way, I reckon he's 38.
Behemoth's wife, pictured stage right, is known as Waxy Balls. In the late 1990s they had a son called Woo, who tragically contracted beak and feather disease and died:
The Woo flies gently up and down the avenue.
"Wa wa wa wa!"
He seemed to like this time of year.
Our lives will be forever Autumn,
now Woo's not here.
Poor Woo's not here!
He's just not here!
