From Lofty. First up, Kookaburras, and oooh, pretty dinosaurs they are. Thanks, Lofty!
Two pics of the resident Kookaburra clan, getting their morning feed from my wife. On the advice of our local vet they get dog food pellets, soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes and drained. There are never any left after a dozen kookas hoover them up.
A Persimmon tree and fruit.
A couple of pics of one of our few successful fruit harvests this year. The persimmon tree, after spending three months under bird netting, yields three full buckets of fruit. Harvested and pruned back severely, the tree sheds its last few leaves on a damp Autumn morning. A row of persimmons sits on the window sill to ripen a bit longer.
