However, spring is coming and our fruit trees and native plants are blooming.
This brings a variety of parrots in to feed.
This morning a whole flock descended onto the huge bottle brush tree at the side of my bedroom window.
I don't mind them eating from there, but I do mind the time, it was 5:30am.
Their chatter was deafening.
Getting up and looking out of the window, I clapped my hands and yelled at them to go away.
Finally they did, with a few coming back later to eat alone.
Here is my bottle brush tree, with a Rainbow Lorakeet enjoying a feed.
Looking through the bedroom window...
They are about the size of a six weeks chicken... They look pretty, but what a pest!!
Here they are nesting for the night in the trees in our town park.
Our Mango tree is presently in full bloom. It the storms don't destroy the flowers we'll have a good crop this year. Then, these little critters along with all the other parrot life, will be visiting for a feed.
"Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind." (Job 12:7-10)
