In between showers.....


I didn't have to go far for today's images, just into my back garden. I took them at about 7.30am yesterday morning when we had a short break in the weather. It always makes me smile to see the bigger birds like these pink and grey Galah tuck into the seeds, like this one below face deep, while the doves sit nearby with anxious looks on their faces. Well the doves had the last twitter yesterday, because two minutes after I took these, the rain pelted down, the Galahs scarpered for cover (moi aussi) and the doves, ignoring the rain settled into the trays and cleaned them out, nice work! I hope the skies are a little clearer in your part of the world and you have a terrific Tuesday....

  6. According to Wikipedia, galah is a derogatory term meaning "fool"---but, cannot be ascribed to these beautiful birds! How lucky you are to have these love birds visit your feeders.

  13. Very funny! I guess in the end the doves win, but if it were a beauty contest it would be no contest - the galah's get the prize!

  22. These two look like they have just arrived from South Beach in Miami. Lots of exotic plumage there. The plain doves could represent me and my wife when we're walking down Ocean Drive.

  26. You have some fine friends there, I am sure the galahs win in the noise stakes too. Sounds wet east and west of the continent.
