A family comes to visit

On Wednesday morning last week I could hear the distinctive high pitched call of the Australian King Parrot in our garden. Imagine my surprise when I went out to our driveway and found not just one bird, but six, a family of these beautiful parrots. They didn’t fly off and watched me curiously, even as our cat approached. So I took a chance and called out to my daughter so she could come out to see them too. They seemed happy to just watch us in turn. Father flew into a branch above me, mum flew somewhere behind me and the four babies stayed mainly on the gate but sometimes on the ground, watching us watch them.

I felt very fortunate indeed to see this family so close up. Such a nice start to my day and truly a blessing.
