Chicki in the Bush
I wonder what Chicki is looking at?
It could be anything: sulphur-crested cockatoos, magpies, ducks. The list goes on…
Nevertheless, here she is on a ledge in the local bushland park, looking a picture of innocent interest. 🙂
I’m sure that her daily visits to the park are the highlight of her life.
Here’s an Australian scene.
This shot was taken in the local bushland park in suburban Sydney, and shows plenty of Flannel Flowers in bloom.
They’re still out, months after they started. Simply beautiful!
Such strikingly-coloured parrots!
I see them now and again. They are less common the Rainbow Lorikeets, but arguably, equally beautiful.
Crimson Rosellas are sometimes seen on the ground, but more often perched in trees or shrubs. They are very agile in flight, too.
Here’s a photo of one as he (or she) finds something tasty to eat.
With space on this blog running low, I’ve started another. Here’s the link.
I’ll still be posting here, as well as at the new one, while I can!
Thanks, everyone!! Let’s try this link https://margaretlynettesharp2.wordpress.com/2014/12/10/ron-and-chicki-at-the-baths/
Rainbow Lorikeet peeking from behind the Old Man Banksia
Is that in the mind of this Rainbow Lorikeet as it peeks out from behind a Banksia flower?
This is Australian bush at its engaging best!
Rainbow Lorikeets Minding their Nest
Although it doesn’t show their brilliant plumage to its best advantage, I like this photo of a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets. This tree hollow is the site of their nest, and they were lucky to get it since it’s also a favourite spot for Sulphur-crested Cockatoos.
Flannel Flowers in the breeze
Right now, the Flannel Flowers are in bloom. Every time I visit the local bushland park, I see their lovely, daisy-like flowers.
They seem to be very choosy in where they will grow. The greatest number here are beside the road, though there a few clumps in the broader bushland. Their heads bob about in the breeze.
Australia’s parrots are very appealing.
In our local park and surrounding areas, it isn’t uncommon to see these beautiful Crimson Rosellas. As you can see, they are richly coloured.
One of the joys of living close to natural bushland in Sydney, N.S.W., Australia…
