Happy birthday !

Happy Birthday to our Queen Beatrix, who is celebrating
her last birthday as Queen today. A few days ago she
announced her abdication the upcoming 30th of april.
From that date on we will have a King, Willem Alexander.
The Netherlands have not had a King since 1890, only
Queens, so it is quite special.

Something interesting

The Common Pheasant (fazant / fasan), is a bird in the pheasant family
It is native to Asia and has been widely introduced elsewhere as a game
bird. In parts of its range, namely in places where none of its relatives
occur such as in Europe, it is simply known as the "pheasant". The word
pheasant is derived from the ancient town of Phasis.
A while ago i saw some of them sitting in trees and then found out on
the internet that they actually go up in the trees every evening, just like
chickens go sit on their perches at night,how interesting !
