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.

  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.
