Tipi di uccelli

Pettirossi e… pettigialli!

The following comic is the beginning (3 pages) of a story from a Topolino, an Italian weekly magazine that publishes comics with Topolino Mickey Mouse, Paperino Donald Duck, Pippo Goofy and other Disney characters. In this story Topolino, Pippo and the dog Pluto do birdwatching.

– Il titolo: Pluto e l’incontro ravvicinatissimo. An “incontro ravvicinato” is a close encounter – with aliens. In this case the encounter “ravvicininatissimo” is very close. In fact, further in the story, aliens also come into play.
– Except pettirosso (robin) redbreast, the other bird species like pettigiallo or pettiblu do not exist, they are just invented words.
