Little Corella

Yesterday afternoon, the sun was warm/hot but I took a walk around the Casuarina (She-Oak) lined, Wangi-Wangi foreshore....to see what I could find.  For today, I'll share the Little Corellas that I came across.


 
 
 
 
 the variety of rustic colours intruiges me
 
 
 
 these Corellas were having a siesta in the uppermost branches of an old Casuarina tree 
 
 
...till they saw me that is

Christian Perrin said...

Aww, they are lovely birds, aren't they!? I really love your photo of the underwater stones though - I'd easily overlook their beauty in real life, so it's nice that you captured them that way.

Neat little birds. It always amazes me a)how much money people spend on boats. b)how little they use them.

mick said...

It's a lovely walk around the lake and the corellas look so cute. I think it's only when they come around in huge flocks that they are so very noisy.

Great summer scenes! The birds are simply charming and they photograph quite well!

Brian King said...

Beautiful scenery! These are handsome birds. I know you've posted photos of them before. We see birds like these in pet shops, not the wild.

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Carole. Great post and fantastic shots of these lovely birds. they certainly decided to start posing for you. I have only seen them once when in NSW. thanks for all the help with blogging issues.

Minoru Saito said...

Hi! Nice captures. It7S the first time for me to see corella photos. Thanks for sharing.

Kleine Waldameise said...

Great thanks for the many interesting and beautiful photos. I love it, because I learn in this way new flowers and animals know that do not exist in Germany. Such parrots I've never seen. Not even at the zoo.

Jeanne said...

Such a great shot of this beautiful pair of birds! What a sweet couple they are. Also love your rocks in the water. I am also intrigued when I see clear water like this and all of the rock colors.

Jeanne said...

Carole i was looking at this and there was a link'

https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/42538?hl=en

Which had some helpful advice. This also reminded me that once I was having some problems, and had added some sort of a sidebar thing??? which was infected in some way with a virus... I was having problems and someone told me to delete what I had added, and as soon as I did that, the problem went away. Have you added anything new???

Helma said...

Lovely weather with you Carole.
And what a clear water with stones in it.
Great photos of the parrots.
Beautiful to behold.
