Sunday Selections #372

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
 
The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen. 

 
Like River I usually run with a theme.  This week is a little more random.


I am going to start with a not very good photo of some of our kitchen gadgets.  The lovely jenny_o recently posted a picture of a potato brush which makes her smile.  It would make me smile too and you can find it here.  I thought that we had nothing quirky to share, but familiarity obviously breeds contempt.  This photo is of part of the window sill over the sink (and reminded me the windows badly need washing).

 The white blob is a Babushka doll and the nesting set unscrews to provide us with measuring cups.  The motor cycle is himself's pizza cutter.  The pink elephant is a tea infuser for the days when a cup rather than a pot is required.  And I smile every time I balance it on a mug.  And nearly obscured is a blue bird whose beak is a can opener.  In front of that is yet another tea infuser.  Ar the back are our smiling salad/pasta spoons.  And I rearranged nothing for the photo.

The next photos are part of the reason our windows need washing.  Last weekend was windy.  Very, very, windy.  And a bright and beautiful afternoon was darkened by a dust storm.




After which I am going to revert to type and feature some of the birds who have been visiting recently.




I do love the corellas.



This pair of King Parrots eat from our hands.  And goodness we feel privileged.




The Rainbow Lorikeets are rare visitors - but welcome.



And this Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo also eats from our hands.  We are very, very lucky.  Finishing up with another of my multitude of obsessions - the sky.  This sunset kept me enthralled throughout the display.






And I liked the way the jet trail neatly bisected the sky.

  1. Beautiful birds and so cool that they eat from your hands. At a nearby park, I can lure chickadees and titmice to eat from my hands but I haven't tried it at home though the chickadees fly right up to me while I am filling the feeders. And a motorcycle pizza cutter, also cool. I don't have any unusual kitchen implements though I do have a collection of beautiful wine stoppers.

    1. Sue in Italia/In the Land of Cancer: Only a few of our avian visitors will eat from our hands. The King parrots and two cockatoos. There are corellas considering it though.
      We have some nice wine stoppers too. I would love to see yours.

  4. I've been thinking about how humans - versus other living beings - have intense emotions. Yet those bird photos challenge that theory. Very evocative.

    Be well, EC.

  7. I'm very boring. I don't have any novelty gadgets.

    I was standing at my kitchen sink on Friday afternoon, and I spotted, just a few metres away, a very large hare. Harry, the Hare, I named him. He was a big fellow. I think he was scouting about finding places to hide Easter eggs!!

    I hope you and yours have a wonderful week and coming Easter weekend, EC...enjoying it the way you choose to...and cuddles to Jazz. :)

  17. Hi EC - fun kitchen implements ... and wonderful they are all there on the sill awaiting their turn - love the motorcycle pizza cutter - but the pink elephant ... lovely. Dust storms I can do without - hail and rain are in vogue here at the moment! I've got to find out what our birds are ... so many new ones for me to get to grips with ... none as happy as your private feeding beaks - lucky things - you and them! Cheers Hilary

  18. What fun! I love all the kitchenalia (thank you for passing that word on) but somehow those smiling spoons just make me smile in return! Thank you for the mention in your preamble.

    Beautiful birds - lucky you to get to see them every day. And even more, to hand feed them. I suspect getting to that stage involved a great deal of patience.

    If you could see our living room window you would realize what dirty really is. The salt that is put on our icy streets blows around whenever the wind comes up. I keep the curtains closed . . .

    1. jenny_o: Those smiling spoons have little feet too. Which crack me up.
      Coaxing the birds to eat from our hands did take a little patience - but was worth it. So very worth it.
      Dirty salt? Ugh. I would keep the curtains closed too.

  19. That's a very bright jet trail. I LOVE your window display. I always meant to buy a set of nesting doll measuring cups, just never got around to it. I have plastic spoons with "faces". The motorbike pizza cutter is a novel idea that I've never seen anywhere else.
    The corellas look lovely and clean, for now. With autumn coming they'll soon be muddy again. You're very lucky to have a sulphur crested eating from your hand.

    1. River: When the skinny one's sister was staying with us she said that each visit/day she noticed something new. The house is very crowded. The corellas are clean at the moment. And we have no rain for them to get muddy. Sigh.
      'Friendly cocky and almost friendly cocky' visit daily now. And almost friendly cocky will allow us to feed him probably every second visit.

  30. I still have trouble believing all the parrot species you have there. I once had a few as pets including an umbrella cockatoo that I had for about 25 years. Getting wild ones to eat from your hands is pretty special. Knowing that they can take a finger off of your hand would make me a bit cautious of the wild ones.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jono: Other parts of Oz get more and different parrots. I am grateful for the ones we see, but do suffer a little parrot envy. The cockatoos particularly could wreak considerable damage but they have no reason to do so. They are not trapped, and want the food. That said, we are careful.

    I looked at your balloon posting and marveled at the one with the tree silhouette as well as the bird and Kermit. I miss watching them float over my home in Stillwater. The town nestles in the St. Croix River Valley and that waterway was a wonderful ribbon for the balloons to follow. Peace.

  63. I love the native birds of Australia At my previous house where we had too much space and garden I would feed them at no particular time yet as soon as I made my presence known-and with food of course They would gather in a short space of time, Even our Two cats would observe from a safe distance having learned a lesson or two particularly from the magpies.
