Anyhoo... that's Nature as they say... Mum's now happily back in the coop with her husband and his other wife. And the sweet little lavender baby is in the nursery.
While on the subject of birds. We had a lovely visitor in our Euodia tree -- a scarlet honeyeater, found mostly in rainforest in NE QLD.
To attract birds, we've planted as many flowering natives as we can, and over lunch, E & I counted the number of birds we can remember sighting here. Counted over 60 varieties.
Over the weekend, we had rather a lot of wind and rain as ex Cyclone Olga finished her dance around the Gulf and headed south to the west of us, down to the Channel Country. She left rather interesting skies in her wake.
