How Cute is This? Feathered Friends…

Feathered Friends

Whenever the Baby Animal Stall makes its appearance at the local fairs, I always head straight for it. I love so many baby animals. From lambs to kid goats to chickens to ducklings: they’re all delightful.

I hope you like this photo I took of some sweet feathered friends.

Oh, and by the way, this blog is ALMOST FULL, and I won’t be able to post here much more, so I’ve created two other blogs. Here are the links.

Focus on Birds: An Australian Magpie and A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo

Let’s continue our focus on birds.

Although each of these feathered friends are common in the local bushland park, it is not so usual to see them together. Each prefers the company of their own kind, it seems. But here we have a frame containing both an Australian Magpie and a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo. Such good-looking birds!

Enjoy!

Kookaburra Wise

18 Jan

I like to think that our feathered friends each have their own unique character. Jaunty, diligent, protective…the list goes on.

My feeling is that this handsome Kookaburra is of the wise variety. Overseeing his (or her) territory, Kooka looks as though he knows it all, and is well pleased.

What do you think?

Ducks are Beautiful!

Ducks on the Pontoon

Ducks are beautiful!

Sometimes they visit our local swimming baths. One of their favourite resting places is on top of the pontoon.

This doubles as a diving platform and swimming-race marking point. It’s the 50 metre mark!

So nice to see our feathered friends enjoying the winter sun.
