Sitting on the fence.....!

This row of Corella's (Corella) sitting on my pool fence are enjoying the warmth of the early morning sun and the birdseed that I throw out onto the lawn each day. There is a definite pecking order, these Corella's and the Galah's (Galah) being a bit bigger own the first round....
Then come the Lorikeets (Lorikeets) the Doves,the Mudlarks, Magpies, Butcher Birds and the occasional Kookaburra... sometimes they get a bit grumpy with each other but more often than not they just go about the business of eating in possibly a more orderly way than humans in a canteen.....!!

The theme for November is 'fences', to see fences from around the world click here (Click here to view thumbnails for all participants)

  1. What a wonderful sight to see all these birds taking turns sitting on your fence. You are so lucky to have such colorful birds around all of the time.

  2. What a terrific post! And those birds - so colorful. We have an occasional cardinal or bluebird, but mostly just sparrows and doves!

  4. You have a wonderful assortment of exotic birds. Our feeders here are over run by House Sparrows who were introduced to N America many years ago and seem to have taken over.

  9. The birds at my bird feeder are nothing like these exotic creatures. Your post reminds me that I missed the CDPB theme for this month. Slept right through it. Sigh. Maybe next month.
