Screaming Birds

They're back..
Those screeching Corella's flying in, in the hundreds.
My granddaughter Shiarny went wild shooing them out of our trees.
Our two little dogs ran after her barking.

The birds didn't go far,  just onto the neighbours roof.
Watching and waiting for a chance to return.

I love to see them free.
Yet  many are caged.
This one  loves the Christmas Bush flowering tree.
(who is watching who?)

A beautiful bird, and a beautiful Bible verse.

Psalm 62:8

                                                      "Trust in him at all times, O people;
                                                          pour out your heart before him;                                                                                                                     God is a refuge for us."


  1. Wow- I had never seen this kind of bird before. Too bad they are so numerous they become a nuisance. They really are pretty-

  2. What beautiful photography! The birds look lovely. Pity they squawk all the time.
    I hope you are well dear. Love and Hugs

  3. Golly! You are simply the best.
    Wish those loud and lovely birds could visit my house. I'd be more than happy to have their company . . . (I'm another who has not, until your photos, seen birds like this . . . )

    Thank you for the beautiful reminder from Psalms, You have begun my busy day in a most splendid manner.

    love & love,

  4. I have never ever seen or heard of a Corella bird. I just love that unique blue around the eye and the startling whiteness of the bird.

    And who wouldn't love those trees!


  5. Those are beautiful birds---very unique looking. That close-up shot portrays a wisdom to their character.

  6. Australia has some beautiful birds! And, I totally love that purple tree. I doubt it would grow in the Canadian north. :(


  7. Wow what beautiful birds. I have never seen those before. You did a great job capturing those closeups too. Blessings, Susie

  8. I have never heard of or seen this kind of bird, it is beautiful!!!! She looks like she got all dressed up by putting blue eye shadow on! How did you get such a close picture? I can see why they love that tree, what a pretty purple!!!

  9. Gorgeous photos, respecially the closeup! Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog, Saved by Grace ( ). I am enjoying following your blog and invite you to follow Saved by Grace.
    May God bless you and your ministry,

  10. Beautiful birds! Great pictures! Too bad they are such screamers!

  11. I love your purple tree and your birds, shame they make so much noise. Australia does have pretty birds and trees and bushes.

  12. Those are some beautiful takes, Crystal Mary, plus I really like God's Word here . . . as well!!! Thank you for sharing God's beauty with me!!!

    I am feeling a little bit sad tonight, due to the fact that some of my brothers and sisters in Christ have taken me off of their blog list, but I understand, seeing I was such a confused person like I was, when I grabbed hold of Satan's lies like I did. But I can assure you, and anyone else, that sees this comment of mine, that I will never depart from my LORD JESUS CHRIST . . . ever again!!! For my life . . . depends on HIM!!!

    God bless!!!

  13. Me again. I forgot to mention that I did some house cleaning on my two blogs and that I recently did my last post on my Dragon's Tea Cup blog, for I'm no longer in sink with the header of that name, now that I have returned to my one and only Lord and Savior . . . Jesus Christ!!!

    Once again . . . God bless!!!

  14. ..birds presence always gives smile to me... they’re simple creatures with a very interesting and inspiring life.. i always love to hear their tales.. i like the bible verse too.. very timely and much appreciated! God bless you and your family!(:
