Lots of Pictures in this post.I'm starting out with the birds as I haven't shown my fave feathered creatures much love lately.
So one day as I walked down to the park to meet up with Dave and kids I was surprised to say the least when I saw this peacock fly up onto the roof of this greenhouse! It was just roaming around the street ... !! I have only ever seen a peacock in the zoo and never seen one fly!
At the same house we had been watching this nest in the front garden.
At the park ...
a Magpie and some lorikeets.
on the way back home ...
I guess he set his sights a little higher??
I spotted these guys roaming around the zoo. The poor little galah I noted looking a bit the worse for wear but didn't realise he was actually in trouble till I saw him being rescued by a keeper with two support team out side the fence of the Tapir enclosure. She bundled him up in a towel or cloth of some kind and carried him away.
This lone pelican was huddled so long I thought he was a fisherman in the distance, for a long while till he stood up! lol
This amazing little honey eater in our backyard. I saw these guys hovering in flight with beaks in blooms. Lovely.
You might have to look hard to spot this one as I did to try and get a photo of the chirpy swift little fella. A blue wren in the top right of the pic taken in local scrub land . He was cavorting with a Jenny who I got closer to but not a clear photo to share Sorry.
If you click on any of these images you should get a bigger version with more detail.
As you can see the bird life there was amazing and varied. I have some more blurry photos of other species. I'll be sure to take my field guide along next time!
