I went outside this morning to take a picture of this handsome Kookaburra. He was feeling the chill in the air and fluffed up his feathers. He had perched in an Ironbark tree in line with our solar shed. I turned and saw one of the elusive parrots sitting in a Grevillia bush having a feed.
The Pale headed Rosella, they nest further down the paddock and as you know I’ve tried to get a sitting shot for ages.
Trying to stay nonchalant in my robe and clogs, I took another pic of the Kookaburra. My robe obviously startled him and his head feathers shot up.
Taking a chance I walked closer and he stopped eating. Obviously mesmerized by my appearance.
Food got the better of him and he stayed put for a little while longer.
I had to share, there are so many pictures I want to put up but I thought nobody would mind having a look at this elusive parrot.
