Sunday Selections # 187
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
There are a couple of other participants too:
Jackie K at WorkingThrough It
Gillie at The View fromHere
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm continuing with some photos of my day at the Gorge Wildlife Park with J and J.
This week I'm featuring some of the birds, many of which were uncaged, roaming free.
while this one preferred to stay way up high
I see you down there
what's that? you want me to come down?
I love their yellow crests, these are our Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.
Here is a Corella getting a good scratch from J
Corellas are the ones with pink around the eyes and on their chests.
here is one of the many cheeky Galahs that were everywhere.
same bird, "dancing" for us. often enough these birds have learned to dance, if you say to them "dance cocky, dance cocky", they will bob up and down and shift along the branches as they do so.
five Galahs against the soft green of a she-oak tree.
a closer look.
Galahs mingling happily with some ducks.
I love their pink and grey colouring.
Cockies are quite destructive birds however and do a lot of damage to wooden structures such as verandas and fences, also cause a lot of trouble to farmers when giant flocks of them descend on the crops.
