I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. So what am I seeing there, kiddo ? – a really big bit of bird protection ?
    I LOVE the sulphur-crested in flight – although limited by the netting; one never gets to see a single one of ’em, normally … Well done you !

    1. It’s a net curtain, M-R. It’s more obvious in certain lighting, and if I’m a bit too close to the window. Since I’ve started putting the seeds out, the same three cockies are around, some galahs, crimson rosellas and those elusive colourful lorikeets. The sparrows haven’t cottoned on yet!


    1. The white ones are common here, Elizabeth. A pest actually, especially in the vineyards. We rarely see the black ones. I love having birds here. I started putting water and seed out during the drought, but stopped with the seed when whole flocks of them turned up. Just started with the seed again.

  2. Ah I missed this! Yeah Cockatoos…lol, So where’s everybody else (the rest of the flock) when this guy descends? Do you know? As we’ve discussed before we don’t have these guys in the wild. I still can’t imagine seeing them out my window and I have no doubt they’re pests. My Umbrella (White) Cockatoo can be a pest.

    But these are so cute, great timing and yes I like your slideshow. Fun! 🙂
