Ten photos and all but this pelican were captured where we lived outside the town of Gloucester in NSW Australia. The pelican made it to the page only because I hadn’t found him in my archive when I posted some pointy beaked pelicans in an earlier post this week. As you can see his beak can certainly hold as much as his belican.
At the bird feeder there was a definite pecking order for feeding. The blue-eyed correllas would eat first.
Followed by the King Parrots
then the Eastern Rosellas would arrive.
The crimson galahs waited to take their turn on the rose arch.
An infrequent visitor was the rainbow lorikeet.
Whilst the parrots fed at the feeder and on plants in the garden the wading birds patrolled the grasslands browned from frosts.
The Butcher bird waited at the chicken house. There were always things he could find there to eat.
