WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY -Crimson Rosella.

Recently when my laptop was away to have more hard drive installed, I fell back on looking at photographs before I had a digital camera and I found these 2 shots.  They were taken when I went to Australia for the first time to visit my daughters' intended in laws, Pat and Peter.   As they were flying over for the wedding later in the year, I wanted to meet them and I took photographs over of all my family so that they would be able to recognise them when they arrived at the wedding.  

I was not a bird watcher at the time, in fact this was 17 years ago but birds seems to take to me!


I quickly handed Peter my camera and he took these shots.



I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.

Thank you for visiting.

Many thanks for those who left comments on any of my posts.

  1. Gorgeous things aren't they? And the one under your elbow in the first photo is an adolescent, just coming into his/her final vivid colours. They visit us often - and always make me smile - though ours would never hand feed.

    1. HI Steve No it is not. At present my email have not been able to be transferred!!! My computer man has had to put my old hard drive on again as I fly t the Isle of Wight to see my daughter but when I come home he will try and sort it out. I need more hard drive because I am going to Africa for 6 weeks and my old hard drive is nearly full!! Many thanks for your kind comment.

  28. The Crimson Rosella has been a favourite of mine in since I was a young child. We do not get them at our own property, but are always thrilled to see them in other near-by areas when we go on a birding outing. Their bright colours and inquisitive nature never fail to disappoint.
