Just love pelicans coz their beaks

can hold more than their belly can.

Just in case you did not notice the first image.

There was a couple who were feeding the birds.

Regular bird feeders I would suggest

by the way said birds reacted.

I have been told  this is the female of

the Superb Fairy Wren pair.

One-Word-Sunday-Colour

~~~~~

Commencing with and shot of the ocean…

…which has encountered Photoshop or Picasa.

Local Parrots have provided the colour…

 

…for the balance of my post.

Parrots were found at several of

Geelong’s Wildlife Sanctuaries or

at Horsham (inland) Botanic gardens

sanctuary

a nature reserve

~~~~~

Geelong has several wetlands/sanctuaries within,

or only a few kilometres drive from,

the Central Business District.

I have only visited the Serendip Sanctuary

two or three times mainly because

it is out of my way to reach.

Serendip does appear to have

more wildlife that are happy…

…to sit and and smile for the camera.

 

This Crimson Rosella Parrot and

the Boobook/Mopoke Owl (previous image)

are but two of the feathered friends

to be found.

 

 

There are 71 different species of Macropods in Australia.

In 2011 the estimated population within

commercial harvesting areas was 34,303,677.

To se any species of kangaroo sit

this quietly is quite a novelty.

Lacking in variety,  but convenient to reach

is Balyang Sanctuary which is only

a five minute drive from where MGW grew up.

 

Balyang is populated by bird life only.

 

Noisy cockatoos, parrots and seagulls…

 

 

…along with a few sleepy pelicans comprise

the bulk of the population.

 

 

I think of Balyang as a sanctuary also.

There is a small shopping centre behind me

and Geelong City in the fog ahead.

opportunity

a time or set of circumstances that makes it
possible to do something.

A couple who love

feeding the birds…

…provided Percy with an opportunity…

 

 

…to practise his  catching skills.

 

And catch he did….thank you very much.

Originally thought that all I had was… 

a passing shot of a Denali moose

for this week.

 

 

Then remembered that Kookaburras

easily qualified.

These are wild ‘pets’

 

 

Not sure if it is a

Kangaroo or a Wallaby

but it found a home in our trees. 

 

 

 

Rosella Parrot

 

 

Just had to include these woolly sheep…

 

Woolly sheep as opposed to these which are

off shears (have been shorn)

about a month ago.
