Birds This Morning
We have a lot of trees in our garden and as a consequence also many birds. The birds pictured here are the kookaburra, one of our resident family , he was quietly sitting on a post this morning. The next bird is the Gang gang parrot- these are quite large and this is a male because his head is red. They like to get into the wattle seeds and are very destructive , making a lot of mess, but on the other hand they are quite cute. The other parrot is the king parrot- very destructive of fruit on trees, but the male has a brilliant orange chest with a green and lime green streaks back. I photographed all these birds this morning.
