you neither chirp nor tweet.
Your laughter is much like mine,
my cackle is much like thine.
We are two sister souls,
one clad in feathers,
the other in clothes.

I saw some magpies digging for grubs with their beaks today. It was really cool to watch.
Thanks for dropping by. I love watching birds, too.
Superb photography. Thanks for playing along.
Thank you, Cee. I’m glad you like my birds.
I was trying to pick a favorite but I just couldn’t! They’re all beautiful!
Oh thank you so much, Linda. I’m so glad you like all of them.
Lovely birds… I think I can recognize the First one (It is the Same one that used to visit your roof, right?)…
All the Very best to you, dear Irina,
Yes, you’re right. That’s the one and it still comes and sits on the neighbours’ roof, waiting for me to step out onto the balcony to give it some minced meat. Yesterday there were four kookaburras, and once I counted ten of them! All these birds in the photos come for a feed. It’s quite a party 🙂
Magnifiques photos, j’aime beaucoup les oiseaux, de ma fenêtre, je les observe mais impossible de pouvoir les prendre en photos , ils sont craintifs et moi maladroite.
Bon week-end Irina, bisous de coeur
Merci, Lucia. J’ai de la chance, mes oiseaux sont apprivoises car je leur donne a manger, un peu de viande hachee.
Bonne fin de semaine a toi, Lucia. Bisous
I love the song of the Butcher bird and the Currawong (or chillawong as we call them in our home). I just don’t like that they come after my canary when he is out catching a little sunshine.
I know what you mean. I keep my canary inside all the time.
That butcher bird is just too cute! Whatta cute name for it too. :oD
It is sure cute and its song is soft and beautiful, but this small bird is a very aggressive predator that literally butchers its larger prey by first impaling it on a branch or securing it in a wedge between two branches in the tree.
What wonderful birds. We have a fly catcher making two nests in a recess under our patio roof. Why two, I have no clue.
Maybe he’s a bigamist! 🙂
