Photographs from the Emerald City
I used to have them visit me also, when I lived in St Ives a few years ago now. They are a gorgeous bird, and very big.I agree about the non-feeding. I bought my grand-daughter a book yesterday, but am now not sure whether I should give it to her, as it has ducks being fed peanuts by tourists in a park as one of its themes.
I hope they don't have peanut allergies.
That's great. I don't see them down my way. We get lots of rainbow lorikeets visiting though.
Jim the rainbow lorikeets are more outgoing.
Nicely taken. They are not easy to photograph.
You are lucky.
We will see them through here is much bigger numbers over the next few months ... the love the seeds on the Maples. But the bush has so much to offer at the moment the birds don't need to raid our gardens ... after a bush fire we see them in droves.
Thanks for visiting. Your feedback is welcome!
