  1. I think you’ll have to buy your cockies a lovely pottery or porcelain bowl, so that your photographs reach their zenith, Christine! Such beautiful birds and the trees look terrific as a backdrop too. 🙂

    • Geez, Barbara, do you reckon the old margarine container is letting the show down? 😀 😀 😀 LOL. I have often thought the same, but I think it is good for size comparison. Actually, one day, I’m going to put up a birdbath and feeder just inside the fence. Then I can hide behind something at the window and get closer images. Time I cleaned the windows, too – I see a fly spot!

      Thanks Barbara.

      • That was cheeky of me! If you were closer I’d love to give you one!! A bird bath and feeder sound a wonderful idea. I remember my siblings and I gave one to my mother for her 70th birthday! 🙂

        • How kind, Barbara. We have one of those little statue making places in nearby Tooborac. I got a bird bath from there ages ago but the top fell off and broke, never got around to replacing it. I must have a look in our local bargain store for a feeder for the smaller birds. It’s wonderful watching them feeding.

    • Ahh yes, they do make it to your part of the world, Janet, but not under their own steam. They are probably in pet stores specializing in birds or the rescue places when they outlast their owners life or patience – they can live up to 65 to 80 years in captivity. Australia is always worth a visit, though, for any reason.

    • A couple of them have taken to stripping small branches from the gum in front of our house. Chewing right through and dropping them on the ground. They look funny flying around with their chests grubby from digging up onion weed.
