Bedraggled.....!

Do you ever wonder where birds go when it's bucketing down with rain? Well in my world they sit and glare at me whenever I venture outdoors! The Galah's chest feathers are almost red when soaking wet, as for the Corella he was just a dirty boy :) Oh la! they do look a wee bit pitiful though. The dove sitting stoically in the background waiting for his share of the soggy birdseed made me smile :) As much as I love the rain I would happily wish it over to NSW right now, my heart goes out to all those who have lost their homes..and more in the bushfires. Take care over the weekend.....

  7. Our birds take cover for the most part, crows don't seem to mind rain but I see small birds like sparrows in the open buildings at the barn. We have bright red male cardinals but nothing that looks like your birds.

  8. I often think of birds when it rains, wondering where they fly to get some protection..
    Here our birds have not such beautiful colors!

  11. At my parents' house the little sparrows fly up under the awning over the front porch to escape the rain. I don't blame them!

  17. They look better in the rain than I would.

    The fires in NSW are horrible. I hope they get relief some time soon.

  21. They are the saddest looking birds I have ever seen, usually they fluff their feathers and look happy for a bit of a bath. The must be so over the rain. Great pics.

  22. Those poor birds... oh, yes, the water´d be needed so much in NSW. Frightening it is. Sometimes I´m glad I live in boring Germany!

  27. Their plumage is so brilliant in the rain, though they do look a bit soggy poor birds! I love the colors and that bottom collage. Also thinking of those poor people affected by the fires.
