Birds of the park 1 of 2

And here is one of those noisy birds. Isn't it simply stunning. We don't see these in the mountains.

Rainbow Lorikeet


  1. Woah - I would really love to see one of these in my backyard. The colours are wonderful.

  2. These birds are beautiful but hey sit in a grevillea just outside our bedroom window at 5 am screeching and eating.

  3. Wonderful shots, Joan. I'm not quite in the bush here in Sydney, so seeing these birds up close is a treat.

  4. All we have around here are pigeons, so I can't help being a little envious.

    In a nearby bird sanctuary we have some chickens and a peacock, but they're nothing like this.

  5. They are common around here in the inner-city, but I am surrounded by fruiting bushes. They are noisy though, and have crook table manners.

  6. Yes they are very noisy and messy. Much noisier than rosellas and nearly as messy as cockatoos.

  7. We see a few Rainbow Lorikeets at Glenbrook.

  8. Now I'm in awe! What gorgeous bird and great captures.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
