Morning Song

I live in near the Australian alps in the south east of the country on a farm far from cities or towns. This is my collection of birds nearby: a local family of eagles, smaller raptors, parrots and small brown birds.

In here you will find stories about the King Parrots that over winter with me, and Scar, their leader.

Image: Song and theological dissertation from a family of Noisy Friarbirds who have arrived at my farm on their northerly trek this end of summer. These birds are very loud. I can hear their squabbles over "Above & Beyond" and a nearby thunderstorm.

Sacred Kingfisher

A pair is nesting in a nearby paddock in a dead willow tree and is obliging me with acrobatics and flying displays.
Sacred Kingfishers are normally greener - this small open ground bird may have a little Forest Kingfisher in the mix.
