Birds of the Park 2 of 2

Down by the river we see the ducks and water hens. Which has got me wondering ... what do water roosters look like?

  1. Wood ducks have such great colours and patterns - especially evident in your great photos!!!

  2. I have been walking past a water hen sitting on her nest everyday for a few weeks. Then 3 little heads appeared. Now they are swimming with mum and dad and others. Male and female look the same to me.

  3. Thanks Diane. I figured that must be the case as I hadn't noticed any different kind of bird in the water anywhere. Those little chicks must be beautiful.

    Red, I agree the wood ducks are beautiful. So elegant.

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.

Musing:
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.
