Urban Dwellers

I got familiam with the old trees on the streats near the Bendigo Hospital, and began communicating with the wild birds that nested in the trees' hollows.

 

Above is a pair of Grass Parots resting breafly from their efforts to satisfy the needs of their yong in the hollow.

 

Below is a Galah, cheking out a potential nesting site.

Lovely colourful birds, Ray.
Ray: Australia has many spectacular birds, Frank...the Galah might be my favourite.

Quels jolis plumages !
So wonderful - to commune with the animals, Ray! They can be great therapists, too! smile Beautiful shots BTW!
Ray: I certainly enjoyed chatting with these lovely critters as I walked to and from the hospital, Elizabeth.

They look like domestic birds Ray.
Ray: Natine Australians, Mate!
So glad you were able to capitalize on your hospital stay, Ray!
Ray: An outpatient, Ginnie...so I made a lot of long walks along these roads.
I've seen the Galah on my visits to Oz, but never the Grass Parrot.
Ray: Galaks are less shay that Grass Parrots, Tom.
It must be nice to walk along and see Parrots in the trees, we only get Sparrows etc.
Ray: Yes...there seems to be many in the trees in this City, Brian.

Good therapy, I should think. I expect that the birds responded with "Twit, twit...."
Ray: The birds seemed to enjoy the interplay, Alan.

Birds will remain an interesting as well as a challenging photographic subject.
Ray: I love birds, Louis, and envy them for their ability to fly.
I seem to recall one of the characters in an Australian soap referring to people who had done something stupid as a flaming Galah!
Ray: Ha Ha

A common epithet for directing at someone who has done something stupid, Bill.

Galams are generally regarded as moisiy and not very cleaver...a view I do not share.
I liked the galahs very much and the sulfur-headed cockatoos. Both were so present everywhere.
