according to Leunig are our ‘feathered angels’
I could hear them in the distance
and in this time of ISO I wanted them closer.
I wanted them around.
But it’s not working . . .
Feeding birds on a terrace
albeit a large terrace
having the birds call in
is not working. I feel opposition.
I tell the birds not to make such noise and try to share.
It was Ok in summer when they called in for water
now it is seed and they get too excited.
Yes it thrills me and sends me buzzing.
Their energy is exhiliarating.
A pair of magpies passing by call in
and two little rainbow lorikeets keep calling
and the chirping native miners are always around
and their song and colour and energy brings us alive
in this time of self isolation.
But you see when the cockatoos heard
there was a chance of a feed
they came to take over
and I worried the neighbours and cockatoos
would not get along.
I didn’t want complaints.
Yes there are neighbours close by – up and down.
It is the sulphur crested white cockatoos
that bring bedlam and chaos and might end the deal.
STOP PRESS: Today 20th September 2020 a new addition to the terrace. A Galah arrived
to try and push in with the Cockatoos. I got a few pictures to add to this blog. I am so happy they visited the terrace. I saw two in the garden earlier this week and was wishing they would come. Photos of the Galah visiting follows this gallery of colourful angels atound us.
