Sunday Selections #378

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 has been a busy week, and the next couple will be too.  So I am reverting to type.



A less than stellar shot (pun intentional) of the moon over a neighbour's home.

Then the following day's dawn starting from the same angle.






It was a much more dramatic display than we usually see.  The next photo is a much more common sight.  And also very welcome.


The rainbow lorikeets are here so often we have started referring to them as Piggy and Grunter.  Not only do they claim the apples for themselves (evicting much bigger birds) they sometimes demand the feeders as well, with some classic 'dog in the manger' behaviour.  They evict other birds from the feeders and then realise that leaves the apples free.  So they rush back to the apples.  And the feeder.  And the apples...




The other birds also give us immense pleasure.



 A galah.


And a corella.

I am in full on gardening mode at the moment, planting hundreds of bulbs (and weeding) in the hopes of a spectacular spring display.  Lifeline is busy and demanding more than their usual pound of flesh.  Himself has several specialist appointments scheduled.  And not next week but the week after our gutters and downpipes will be replaced, with (hopefully) roof restoration to follow.  In between some insane busyness next week we hope to get to the National Museum (a fascinating building) to see a special exhibition.  Cross your fingers, and watch this space.

    Good luck with the builders!

  2. Dear EC
    Piggy and Grunter may have appalling manners, but they are so beautiful they may just get away with it!
    Wonderful skies again - your photos are lovely.
    Hope the gardening and bulb planting are going well.
    Best wishes

    1. Ellie Foster: They are indeed beautiful. I don't think the other birds care though. I am amazed at just how bold they are. Most of the birds they take on are bigger than they are, including Bearded ravens, currawongs and cockatoos.
      We got over three hundred bulbs in yesterday and hope to repeat that a little later today.

    Replies
    1. Bill: Very few of our birds are softly spoken. Or melodious. And the rainbow lorikeets can complain very loudly if they arrive and there is no apple left. Even if they are the reason there is no apple.

  13. We just had our roof replaced with metal. It will outlast us by decades but alleviates the problems we had any time the wind is high, shingles flying off.

    The birds are gorgeous EC. I fear I would spend all my time watching them.

    1. Marie Smith: Our roof is tile and there are some cracked ones. And the gutters are a disgrace. I am not looking forward to the work (or paying the bill) but it will be an improvement.

  17. EC, here is the lime mousse recipe:

    Lime mousse

    Ingredients:

    1 can condensed milk
    Zest of 2 limes
    150 ml lime juice
    1 plain yogurt
    300-400 ml whipped cream
    3 gelatin leaves
    A few basil leaves (optional)

    In your “mousse bowl” mix the condensed milk, the lime zest and the yoghurt.

    Grate lime juice with basil leaves

    Add juice and basil mixture to milk and yogurt mixture
    Fold whipped cream into the above mixture.

    Gelatine: soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water until they are softened then place bowl into a saucepan of gently simmering water and let them melt.

    Then add the gelatine to the other mixture.

    Decorate with lime zest

    Chill for 40 minutes before serving.

    P.S. I have seen other recipes which I find less complicated. For some reason, I avoid recipes that call for gelatin leaves! Do not know why.

    1. Caterina: Thank you. I saw that you had posted it on your blog, and was grateful. As a vegetarian I avoid gelatine too. I might explore and create a 'combination' recipe. Next time I feel I have earned a treat.

  28. Perhaps you could fill a couple of feeders with apples? Or hang seed studded apples? Love that galah looking straight on, looking quite regal.
    Hooray for new gutters! Will you be having gutter guards installed to protect from leaves?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. River: We have discovered that if we put apple on the feeders ALL of the birds throw the pieces off. Seed studded apples do happen sometimes. Largely by accident when I carry the cut apple out. The gutters will indeed have gutter guard. There are three very large eucalypts and lots of other trees.

  37. I envy you deeply for these fascinating birds in your garden. Those rainbow lorikeets must be pretty busy between the apples and the feeders - I'd love to see that. I'm missing the orioles this year, they haven't come back to our neighborhood. It does make me a bit sad, they are such sweet chatty birds.

    Replies
    1. Carola Bartz: I hope the orioles do return. I have learned that birds can very easiy attain the status of favoured friend/welcome visitor. The lorikeets are very busy indeed. Sometimes too busy to eat as they defend the territory they claim.

  58. Spring is in full bloom here. My favorite cultivated spring flower is the hyacinth. But in the forest around my mountain cabin, the trillium is in full bloom, the bright pure white blossoms pop out from the mossy forest floor. Over the next weeks, they will slowly darken to lavender and then dark purple. Seeing the trillium is the announcement of spring to me. I love the way the earth balances our seasons. Spring here is fall in the southern hemisphere. We cycle around each other like the yin yang symbol.

    1. Galen Pearl: Another blogger introduced me to the trillium. Something I would LOVE to see. I am also very fond of hyacinths, but have a weakness for so many blooms. Like you I love the balance of seasons. Not least because I can enjoy favourites twice over.

  65. Such beauty! A couple of thoughts come to mind. One is something I learned from a nature show about skin diving in Oregon, a diver's comment being that the further from the equator one goes, the more drab the sea life becomes. This got me to wondering if it's the same for wildlife in general. The second thought it that I once assumed that pretty skies were universal, but here in Oregon's Willamette Valley, the sky tends toward being either gray (all winter) or cloudless (all summer). Over in the desert, the air is always clear and the clouds vivid, varied, and beautiful.

    1. Snowbrush: We are quite a way from the equator, but yes, as a general rule it does seem to work. With some notable exceptions. We get a mixture of clear and cloudy days here, and I hope to never give up watching them. And wondering.

    1. Small Kucing: It does. It is worth the time and the energy though. Really worth it.

  70. Whether the stars are shining or not, your photos are ALWAYS stellar. "Reverting to form" with shots of the sky and birds suits me just dandy. I'll never tire of them.

    Have a fantastic weekend. Fingers crossed for your trip to the museum. :)

  71. That's funny that the Piggy and Gruner (lol!) are so greedy. I'm sure it's a funny sight to see. I love the Galah bird too, he's a beauty! My first to ever see or here of one, so your picture was a double treat for me.

    1. mail4rosey: Word has got out. Piggy and Grunter brought four friends with them yesterday. And they fought with each other as well as with the other birds. The galahs are pretty birds aren't they? We are fond of them too. Very fond.
