hello there …

I walked out onto the back deck and found these two cuties snuggled up together … it’s a bit windy today, and they are sitting in a sheltered spot on the deck railing. This pair visit on a daily basis and are not shy about peering in windows and doors to see why their breakfast […]

[photo taken by the girl, using my Canon 450D … ]  We often have kookaburras sitting on our fence, gravely inspecting our lawn from a short distance. They sit and watch … then swoop down and dine on fat, juicy worms, I’m guessing. The other local visitors, apart from ducks, are galahs, who inspect the […]
