is doing the work?   

Maybe he’s just the ballast!

So far this year we haven’t been inundated with cockatoos

‘aerating’ the front and back yards.

To date only two corella have paid us a visit.

 Each one took two large bites from our soil

and haven’t been sighted since.

 

For some reason, this year,

our New Holland Honey Eater population

has swelled to the extent that they

are rather noisy as they go about the daily ritual

of depleting flowering trees of their nectar.

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.

Not far from the Geelong CBD…

…can be found, if you are lucky…

 

…Australia’s largest airborne bird,

the Wedge Tailed Eagle.

 

This vulture was rehabilitating in South Africa’s

Moholoholo Wildlife Centre.

 

In 2013 we were allowed to feed this magnificent bird. 

Its eye are focussed on the next hand

to hold and feed it.
