I've been a little bird-snap-happy lately but I've seen so many just around the house that it only seems right to take their photo. This was a mumma bird in her nest in a colourful tree in my mums front yard.
This little blue bird was singing such a pretty song as he bounced through my back hedge one day while I was hanging out washing. So... as you do, I ran inside, grabbed my camera and chased him around trying to get a good shot before he took off.
I love the peek-a-boo shot!
I've also taken to feeding some baby magpies a little dried cracker when they squeak and squawk outside my front door. My baby as I call him has been coming over for visits almost daily for the past 6 weeks or so and I've been taking some shots of him which he doesn't seem to mind. These were the first I took of him and him with his mum.
These next ones were taken about 11 days later. Such a funny little thing........
And finally, we now have 2 babies that come and go and this was the two of them together.
Living in a unit this is the closest thing I can have as a pet. At least for now they are friendly, I just hope they remember me when it comes to swooping season next year!!
