Back yard bird watching

by Melanie Olson May. 30, 2010 1594 views

To add to the menagerie that is my back yard, these birds were spotted today.

From left to right: rosellas, rock doves, lorikeets

Rosella mates

Lorikeets - this was taken with my zoom on maximum. Sorry for the blur.

Rosellas again

Rock doves - also known as pigeons by city folk. ;)

If I were to look out and see birds that color in our yard I'd know one of the neighbors pet birds had escaped.

LOL! I call pigeons "flying rats" as well. It's funny - when you see a family of them feeding together in the country, they don't seem quite so bad.

Great shots. I considered getting a little lorikeet tattoo on my calf as my Australia 2009 permenent reminder
