Parrot botherers R Us

We have a wonderful variety of birdlife here. Earlier this week, we had currawongs and magpies making quite a (musical) racket and as they chased each other and found insects in the newly mown grass.

At other times, white cockatoos have invaded our citrus trees. At night an owl calls softly in the valley below.

But today a flock of white headed rainforest pigeons spent an entire morning in one of our satin ash trees, quietly tucking their heads under wings and trying to keep out of the rain. Gorgeous, aren't they?
