Max & Blackie

You're sure of a friendly greeting at Barkland from these two (can you guess which is which?). Max is the ace finder of rare birds (notably Collared Flycatcher) but is slowing down now at the ripe old age of 14, although he still finds every Water Rail in the garden. Blackie hasn't quite grasped the whole bird finding thing, he just runs everywhere (a bull in a china shop springs to mind).
