Wild Bird Wednesday - Nothing but Galahs


In this protracted heat, well into our autumn, months of it 
and the last ten days hovering well over 30C, 
sighting of birds has been rare. 

Having stepped on and mangled my glasses, has not helped 
one bit, nor that the programme on my Canon has gone haywire.


So, all I could manage, was these Galahs sitting on the front 
fence of my yard.


At least they are colourful.

  8. Oh stepping on your glasses is not fun (once I sat on my husband's...that was even less fun!).
    Hope you get them fixed or replaced soon!

    I have to smile at you saying 'only a gullah'..as to me it is the most beautiful exotic..I can hardly imagine seeing it outside my window. He's beautiful.

  14. Through WBW I think pink has become one of my favorite bird colors.
    These are lovely images Arija! I like how it looks like she has one foot out posing like a dancer. :)

  16. I adore galahs - and we have them here too. Our weather is slowly, finally cooling a little. So the corellas are back. An occasional cockie, king parrot and over the last few days a pair of eastern rosellas. Joy and bliss.

  20. Galah pink, flamingo pink, the pink colouring of birds is never insipid is it. Well-captured photos Arija - the galahs are screeching outside my window this morning as I type this. Hope your glasses and camera are restored to working order pronto. Good to have cooler weather today.

  23. Hi Arija, feel like you are an old friend to me especially as I sit by your stove header a lot. Love your header. I am sorry to hear your husband is apart from you, living in a home now. You were my first follower long ago. It has been a journey we have shared...many pictures and stories. Take care old friend, days will get better.

  24. Think how far people in some parts of the world would go to see a bird like this - and we have them in our backyards!

    I think you may be a grateful as I am for some more seasonal weather!

    Cheers and thinks for linking to WBW
