Some sbeep after acting as obariots for the birds' look as if a bag of lime had been thrown over them. However, it has to be proved whether they iDjare tbe wool or not, If so, war mast be de* clared on ibem. The Willie Wagtail is fond of following sheep/cattle and horses and bopping on their backs aod polling pieces of wool and hair out to lino their nests. Bat not so the starliog. He Bimply alights on tbe sheep's back and stays tbere for'hours ab & time.
