The Daily Bird #27

From Lofty:

Saw these Little Corellas canoodling, eating and bickering in a city park today. Often they congregate in their thousands on the open grassy areas around dusk but I didn’t have my camera along a few days ago. They are easily spooked into wheeling clouds of screeching featherbrains. These I caught by zooming in from the bike path trying to not make any unusual noise or sudden movements.

They are gorgeous! Click for full size.

    Fortunately I had just picked up my monthly ration of Industrial Cheddar from the Greek wholesale grocer across town. This helps to repulse them if they had tried to tear me limb from limb.

    Greek Industrial Cheddar? That has even the mildly deranged penguin confused.

    Proven defenses (besides British Industrial Cheddar, horses, and peas) include teh trum-prat, and thugs. Possibly also walruses, but they are not as dangerous, and certifiably much cuter(and tastier).

    (Written after a few bottles of vin, whisk(e)y, and some beers, so insert / remove “nots” until it makes HIC! sense.)

    Pfah, Greeks don’t make the cheddar, they trade it. It has sailed the seven seas in a sleek and saucy sloop where the salty sailors songs have honed a fine edge to the half ton blocks. Unpack with care.

    Much this thing we call life is seen on these pictures.

    The fighting parrots in the second are very dynamic, so much movement on a still picture.
