Aerial Survey



Three pair of Red Rumped Parrot made a brief survey of my patch this week. They didnt stay to sample the lawn though. Bummer! In this pic we have two males and one female. Usually they are seen in lawns or in grassy roadside verges, where they can be practically invisible. We get a much better view of thier lovely colours here.

Its common to see them along the side of the main road thru our town, but not usual to have them here at the house...I wonder what they are looking for? :)

do you ever get adjusted to seeing these birds, lavender? you know if we were to see this on the usa east coast it would be unbelievable!!

this has to be a giant gift, right up there with the fact that you are where you are because of love!

:)

KJ Never get tired of seeing the birdies, was like that when I was over there too - but alas, no digital camera back then.
My love has to work very long hours, perhaps he sends the birds to delight me when he has to be away.....oh my gosh, did I just say that? Wow, true love really is transforming me - gonna hit the publish button before I edit that -Thanks KJ! :)

Love the way they are all facing different directions and seeing their colors against that beautiful blue sky!
Great pic, pretty birds!!

Hi BetteJo, wasnt that nice of the males to give us 2 views, LOL Most considerate really Tehehe When they are grazing in the grass they really do blend in well, even Mr's Red Rump doesnt seem to show - who'd have thought that cammo could be so colourful :)

Perfect aerial view of them Lavender! Maybe they were spying your budgie's food?

great pic, lavender!

it's great when wildlife comes visiting, isn't it?

Lavender said...

Anon Perhaps they were! Maybe I should be a little careless with the seed next time I see them Tehehehehe...still, I reckon if theyd sampled my lawn, they would have stayed longer :)

Moggie It sure is, makes my job pretty easy! LOL You must have to travel a bit to get your shots, bet youve seen some fantastic places! :)

Beautiful birds are attracted to your place.

Tim Love that blue sky too, thanks for stopping by!

Captain Im very lucky arent I? Always a bit of a thrill when you get a 'stamp of approval' from Mother Nature :)

We only have black birds. Why can't we have these kinds?

Lavender said...

Ces Aw Sorry Ces! A great way to see who else may be flying around is a feeder - and the best time to get birds interested in a feeder is winter - which it will shortly be there - maybe its worth a try???? :)
