By The River…

Margaret's Classic Posts

Chicki and I love to walk beside the river. There are so many beautiful and interesting birds to see, from Swallows to Pelicans, tiny Kingfishers to Sulphur-crested Cockatoos.

Still, there’s a special charm to ducks, and several varieties come to visit from time to time. It’s hard to resist giving them a crumb or two when they come begging…

Some have become too tame for their own good, but let’s hope their friendliness does not become their undoing.

A Pelican Flies Over the River

12 Jun

Margaret's Classic Posts

Our little white dog Chicki loves her daily walk by the river, but the main attraction for her seems to be the exciting smells that linger here and there. But for me, possibly the greatest lure is the prospect of seeing first-hand, beautiful birds of many varieties.

One of the rarest and spectacular sights is that of a Pelican. Yesterday, I spotted one one the river. Unfortunately, though, there were some unfriendly water-birds around who chased it off, despite its larger size.

I hope you enjoy this photo of a Pelican in flight. Copyright ©

A Rare Visitor: A Striated Heron

4 Jun

Margaret's Classic Posts

These unusual birds seem to be loners. Once in a while, I see a Striated Heron inside our local swimming baths. They seem to shun company, for I’m yet to spot one anywhere near another bird of any description. Although they lack the strikingly graceful form of some of the other water birds of the Georges River, they nevertheless manage to catch my eye.
