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.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. This week I am reverting to type and featuring some of the birds who are regular visitors here.
Susan Kane adores the long-beaked corellas so these beauties are for her.
Some of the sulphur-crested
The rainbow lorikeets used to be rare visitors to my city. Some of them have obviously moved here (or escaped captivity) and are doing very well indeed.
The Spotted Turtle-doves were introduced to Australia over a hundred years ago (for food?) and have settled in well, particularly in the coastal areas (which we are not) of Eastern Australia.
The Crimson Rosellas are yet another bird who welcomes the seed bucket.
The Eastern Rosellas are smaller (and shyer) than the Crimson Rosellas. We love them.
I am finishing up with a pair of King Parrots who were looking through the kitchen window at us. They start on the front veranda and, if they feel neglected, come round the back and make their presence felt.
