A special visit – part 3 the birdlife

Helen and I were awake early on our first morning, mostly because of the raucous noise created by these fellaswho very quickly grew in number.  They were decimating the top part of the rhododendron; nibbling at the flower buds and actually chopping off the small branches.Eventually several came and sat on the balcony railing and fed on some crumbs we put out.  Helen caught this pic with 3 of them each with food in a claw.On the second morning we were entertained by some very pretty boys in stunning plumage and on our last morning we were visited by this plump kookaburra who actually preened for each photo, but unfortunately mine were all badly blurred, so thanks to Helen again for this pic.It was wonderful for Anne, and us, to see these gorgeous creatures up close.

Another chapter to come…..

    The last close up of the red/green/blue bird made me think that those colors would make a wonderful quilt! Even including the color of the railing. Thanks for sharing all the birds….so exotic seeming compared to what we have here in central IL, USA.
