Topic of the Month – November 2019

Posted on: October 31, 2019

This month’s topic is Ornithology, which is a fancy way of saying Birds, because it felt like a great time to do Birds as a topic but we’re nowhere near B. So here is a topic full of those feathery objects of study of ornithologists – what’s not to love?

Next month’s topic is Philosophy.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I choose the topics alphabetically. All cartoons are ©Judy Horacek. I’d rather you didn’t use these cartoons without my permission, but if you must, I’d appreciate it if you acknowledge my authorship and the source.  They are cartoons, not memes! Cartoons this month were mostly first published in The Age, but some are also from The Australian Weekend Magazine, and some were first published by me, in different cartoon collections.

      If they stop watching birds and fire up the internet they might. Glad you liked them.

    Just the perfect way to start my day over here in the US – Tytyty as always, Judy, and an early Happy Birthday for mid November from someone with a birthday the day before yours 🙂

      You’re very welcome Teresa. You probably don’t know, but your birthday is a very significant day in Australian history – several important defining events happened. Not sure what it means for someone in the States, nor for someone (me) be the day after. Happy birthday to you!

    Touched such an emotional nerve did that Jennifer one – birds are sort of humans, too.

      Wish I’d called the ornithologist Jane then. ‘Jane’ and ‘Jennifer’ are the two names I use most often when I want to use a female name (sometimes the word ‘she’ just doesn’t work with the rhythm). They are my Everywoman names. Unlike Mildred, who asserted herself with a complete personality.

      Thanks Juliana. I think the rooster on is particularly clever, I am very proud of that one.
