A few birds getting around Goodwood this morning
Magpies and Peewees are frequent visits to our yard. As are Galahs and Cockies, Top Notch pigeons, Zebra Finches, Willy Wagtails and occasional Budgerigar and pretty coloured Kingfishers (that are hard to photograph)
There have been numerous pigeons enjoying the left overs of the hay we fed the weaners a week or two back, in the cattle yard at the house. Every now and then one will fan out its tail feathers in what I assume is some sort of courting dance to impress a suitor.
Up close you can see how pretty their feathers really are.
This pigeon is smaller than the Top Notch ones and I’m not too sure of its name?
These fellows are never too far away….this one checking me out, at the highest vantage point of the Cedar tree, while he/she calling to their mates…looking to the right….
….looking to the left….keeping a keen eye on me.
One of its mates came to join in the observation of the woman with the camera & seems to be giving a running commentary.
Edward and his chicks haven’t visited for a while now but they have been seen around, so that is a good thing.
I hope everyone is able to share their space, where ever it may be, with native bird life.
