Photobomber :)



I apologize straight up for the slightly fuzzy quality of these shots.. long lens, no tripod, bleary eyes :) and it was very early yesterday morning.. but when I downloaded them they made me smile, if they make you smile also my work is done :)

Three patient doves waiting in a row...


Joined by many more waiting to go!


 Getting impatient with this greedy pair...


Next thing you know the galahs are there!


I call them the bossy, the Rainbow Lorikeets (very cute short video).. the bold, the galahs, they are excellent mimics have a look here, we have one in the garden that sounds exactly like me calling P out in his office, you can imagine how confusing that gets :) and lastly the meek, the spotted doves, patiently waiting for the leftovers. I hope they made you smile too, happy Thursday, take care...

  10. Who needs flowers in the garden when you've got such colourful birdlife? A lovely series of pictures.

  11. Except for the colorful collection of birds, this could be my backyard. Some patiently waiting while others just charge ahead. The lovebirds seem to get their way most of the time but, I've never seen them be overly aggressive. Maybe they are still so new to the wilds of Arizona that the other birds are in a bit of awe of them.

  12. Colorful birds for sure. I don't understand why the doves didn't simply attack - they had the numbers advantage! Hope there was enough left over for everyone to get a taste. It's a fun series, and you did well, bleary-eyed and all!

  16. I guess doves really are peaceful, Grace! What a sight that must have been for you.

  18. All those exotic birds are wild down under??? We have to pay big bucks to get to see them!!! Although...there are a couple of communities in SoCal that have flocks of Parrots...and a few Peacocks...but that's pretty much the extent of it....and those are only wild because they got away!!!

  19. Colorful friends you have there.

  20. Wow! You have an aviary there. And, probably, lots of bird poop.

  21. I love these, particularly the second one. Makes me think of a committee meeting in our Congress.

  22. They are great shots Grace. I particularly like the one with the three doves watching the lorikeets.

  23. They almost look like they are painted, those bright colours. Very nice photos, feel sad for the pigeons to have to wait so long.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Owwwhhhh, they are gorgeous Grace! Hope the doves got some leftovers...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am definitely smiling! You are so fortunate to have these beautiful birds around you. My grandkids got to feed some Rainbow Lorikeets at the zoo last summer and they loved it!

  26. Awwww, Grace, I smiled biiig :-)
    Aw, how beautiful and also funny!

    Ingo´s Dad once found a local, helpless baby-bird and raised it (long before I joined the family). I think the bird was named Hans. He could "say" the Dad´s name and imitate the clock, they told me.

  27. What great photos of the lorikeets and doves. Looks like the lorikeets are lords of the feeder and less brightly colored birds must wait. Lorikeets generally eat flower nectar, so it is odd they are attracted to bird seed. Your last photo is spectacular.

  28. Great shots, Grace, such beautiful birds!
    (It is not the first time I say that).
