Smoke has gone for moment.. played heck with my sinuses and that was only after a few days. Interestingly, we had half an hour of moderate rain a few days ago that everyone thought would clear the smoke. Zero impact,
. But the accompanying windy conditions did the job after another day or two. Since then we have had high humidity and increasing mist/fog like conditions. this was at the height of the smoke.
please, no rat statistics. I have had breakfast yet. Few years ago I grew tomatoes. Soon started losing them so put up netting. Caught a large rat. Stopped growing tomatoes.
Palm or sulphur-crested?
SC! In the mornings we get them sweeping down the valley from out of the forest and in the afternoon they return "home" for the night. One year we had our Baltimore friends here and seven Kookaburras lined up on a branch as we got the bbq going one came down and we were able to hand feed it But this photo was pure luck.
Oh, and our cockatoo is named Centurion.
Wonderful piece of design.
PS: Just been checking... I meant black not palm cockatoo. Our one encounter was walking in Lamington. The track guide notes emphasised the changes in flora and fauna that accompanied the change in altitude and how we would see different trees and birds... and within 50m of the location we looked up and saw them.
Nice view Bruce hard to believe the diff in vision , like the stuffed parrot on the balcony , you do no red wine cures all sinus problems
It is when you see photos like this that you appreciate nature. Stunning design.
Just seen the one on the ,cockatoos ,great photo ,, must admit one of the things I could not believe when we were in Aussie was the bird wildlife , we went to a place Think just above surfers , there was a feeding place for the birds ,Think parrots or parakeets ? Hundereds of them swooped down to get food , good party trick from park but very good show , except from being covered in bird crap ,
That would have been in Currumbin, just south of Su refers I think. Famous.
You could be right there Bruce great place must admit ,love that side of the coast especially noosa , great place , contact later
all the best
