It's beautiful, and so are they!
Ray: I made both these shots from the front steps of our house, wit a fairly long lens.
Joli support pour cet oiseau.
Ray: It is a beautiful and safe perch, Martine.

If I were a bird I too would be up there singing every morning. I might even attempt a few bars of the Droitwich Breakfast Anthem..
Ray: Thank you, Chris...I like to know I am not alone in envy of Birds.

Looks to be a good vantage point and out of reach of the cats.
Ray: Our cats take a few birds, but not from up there, Alan.

Your garden is a veritable paradise of birds and blooms, Ray
Ray: Our garden does attract many visitors, Lisl, just as I hoped.

[Just a few minutes ago the Kids called me outside to see a beautiful Green Tree-snake that was wisiting next to the outside kitchen.]
If I were a bird...just like Chris said! smile
Ray: In responded "Thank you, Chris...I like to know I am not alone in envy of Birds.'.
Superbe tes photos !
L'arbre à  coton est lui aussi très beau
Ray: C’est un bel arbre qui fleurit environ 4 semaines à compter du jour de Noël.
A good place for practising your scales
Ray: They do see moved to do that from up there, Bill.

This is beautiful, Ray. What a beautiful flowers, no wonder that the birds love to be there and sing "to the world".....
Ray: Thank you, Astrid.

I will feature more birds in this tree in a week or so...closer view.

I do like that tree Ray, the colour is superb.
Ray: It is a lovely tree, Chad, and will provide the setting for a few pictures in the next couple of weeks.

That is why we call them Indian Mynah - they can talk your head of.
Ray: We call them Common Mynas, Louis.

Does this bird also eat the yellow balls of the flower?
Ray: The bird in the tod image just uses the tree as a perch, but the other bird takes nectar from these flowers, Philine.
Perhaps we ought to put a perch like that in our garden
Ray: It is a lovely tree, Brian.
I would perch there too if I could. What a pretty tree.
Ray: Yes...a pretty perch.
He has a clear view from atop this colourful perch, Ray.
Ray: He is about 5 meters above the ground, Beverly.
I like the way the flowers point down...
