A Magpie Takes A Walk on the Shore

30 Oct

Margaret's Classic Posts

It isn’t every day that I see a magpie on the shore of the local swimming baths.

These handsome birds are well known for their habit of swooping at humans during the bird’s breeding season, but I am yet to witness it. Fingers crossed that my run of luck continues!

Cockatoos Aplenty!

22 Oct

Margaret's Classic Posts

These days, the Sulphur-crested cockatoos that inhabit the local park are making themselves more visible that ever. I’m not sure whether it’s simply because their numbers have increased, or whether the cockies are becoming bolder in their habits, but over the last few weeks there have been many, many of these amazing birds, searching for food around the local river banks, and even on the grassy footpaths outside the houses that are located in the more quiet areas of our suburb.2015_0531imagefacebook0073. Love their expressions!!

P.S. I’ve just released a little eBook of three short stories, two of which have won literary awards. The eBook is called ‘The One That Got Away (and other short stories)’. Here’s the link https://www.amazon.com/That-Away-other-short-stories-ebook/dp/B01M8HPHQB/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1476685169&sr=1-1&keywords=the+one+that+got+away+by+sharp

Kookaburra Grabs a Treat

22 Oct

Margaret's Classic Posts

It’s not uncommon to discover Australia’s Laughing Kookaburras looking for whatever they can find that picnickers have left behind – or even for these bold birds to snatch a piece of someone’s lunch.

But recently I saw one, that was about to fly off with a piece of orange rind in its beak. Maybe it was health-conscious… How much better was this than, say, half a burned sausage?
