Birds in my garden V.....

The birds in my garden are up at the crack of dawn and these days that's pretty early, I'm so happy that I planted these Geraldton Wax (wax flower) last year because it keeps the Port Lincoln Parrots (28's), also known as 28's because of the noise they make, busy until I can get out there and feed them with the rest of the birds. This shot was taken at sun up and they were so busy snacking that they didn't notice me at all.....

  8. What a tropical paradise! I've not seen such birds...in south Florida there are a lot of little green parrots that screech through the skies. Not native to the region, though. Someone let a few loose and they've multiplied to become a bit of a nuisance!

  12. Both the birds and the flowers are gorgeous! They contrast nicely and the light is perfect - I think I may have to see if I can find some wax flower here...

  36. I have always been taken with these since I first was 'dive-bombed' by them down south of Perth in the mid-70s. Gorgeous birds that we do not have over here at all.

  37. Oh oh wow! This is like a photo from National Geographics for me, we NEVER see such pretty birds flying in the wild like that here! Absolutely gorgeous, Grace ;D
