Galahs and Long-billed Corella

...this pine tree was the chosen spot for the galahs to soak up some early morning sunshine

preening

grooming

sentinel duty

and a single Long-billed Corella; the odd one out!

 wondering how'd I get here; am I in the wrong place?

These are beautiful shots Carole! I am so jealous of all of the amazing birds that you have right at your fingertips! So lucky I am to be able to look at your photos though! Best to you from Texas!

Nice to see such beautiful birds in the wild. We don't have that here in The Netherlands. Not the tropical ones.

Greetings,
Filip

Beautiful birds Carole...great pics! Probably have these in zoos here in the USA, but not in the wild that I know of. We do have the long needle pines though!

These are such pretty birds, Carole. Even the odd one out. We don't have anything like that here is the US

Love those pink birdies! The last photo is quite cute.

No pink birds in KS either...except plastic flamingos people stick in their yards! You have all the interesting colors!

By the way, I mentioned your blog on my blog today. And I posted a bird shot. Not to compare with yours, mind you. I've only taken a few! The birds don't exactly sit still for you, do they?!

All the best, Carole!

i used to have a pet Rose-Breasted Cockatoo!
She was an absolute angel, and lived to be almost 30 years old. These are wonderful photographs, Carole.

Wish I had them in my backyard. Lovely pics Carole!

What this seemed great to see Carole yourself.
Beautiful birds with their pink breast and then even so much together. Just fantastic.
Thanks for the link :-)
