Just one cocky in the gum tree above me……..he’s one of the lookouts for the gang (mob) of them having a feed in front of me!
(Sulphur-crested Cockatoos work together to protect the flock. While feeding, two cockatoos will keep a lookout for signs of danger from the post of a nearby tree. If danger appears, these cockatoos will screech loudly as a warning. The word ‘cockatoo’ has even become a colloquial term for someone who keeps guard. Source.
I saw just one Crimson Rosella ‘hiding’ in the tree – they usually fly in pairs so I’ve no idea where his mate was. And just one small duck hiding in the rushes – no idea where the rest of them were either!
There was just one little one enjoying the swings……. a lovely sight on the first day restrictions regarding playgrounds had been lifted. It was a sunny but freezing cold morning with few people about so another lovely sight was this one older couple feeling comfortable enough to take a walk in the park
And there is just one view that can’t be missed – the view of The Dandenongs. Looking a bit scorched in parts just below the tv masts, not from actual ‘bush fires’ but from recent burn offs (controlled burns) that will assist in keeping that part of the hills safe.
It’s been a while I know.😊……..today I’m joining in with Elephants Child and others at Sunday Selections……just one more time!
And I’m back to joining in with Michelle at Nature Notes where you’ll find much to interest you in the big wide world of nature
