Ruffled Feathers

As the birds flew in, they'd take a few seconds for their feathers to settle down.

They would also land with their crest flared. I failed this night to capture that.  

 If nothing else, it was very good for me to work on my observation skills. My attenton to detail is somewhat lacking.... 

They also spaced out. If they didn't land apart, they would walk a certain distance to their 'spot'. Does anyone know why they do this?

One of the things I love about Sydney, is even in the city there is nature and wildlife if you look properly.

It's time for #Allseasons for another week.

  1. It's so cool they are common there, we can only see those in bird sanctuaries here.

  2. My, they are so beautiful!
    And they certainly know how to get the best seat for the view.

  3. they are so beautiful and look so close to you

  4. They were very close to me. Less than a metre!

  5. What a gorgeous bird! Thanks for sharing this great group of photos!

  6. I still say they like the view and I agree with them. So cute they are. I can't believe how close you were to them.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Lydia. ♥

  7. Hello, :=) These are all spectacular images. You live in a very beautiful area of Sydney, it does indeed look very green. You don't say, at least I didn't see what you call these birds. I'm thinking White Cockatoos. It's strange how they don't mind being in close contact on your balcony. Their spacing on the rail, reminded me of Covid regulations.:=) Beautiful birds and photos.

    1. That was just a holiday rental in Sydney, but it felt a world away from home. Sydney is very small and very big at the same time. That's hilarious on the covid spacing. I will think these birds are social distancing from now on!

  8. Beautiful parakeet ! Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.

  9. Thanks for hosting, Lydia. The cockies are marvellous!
