Oh yes. I can hardly wait for the start of each month when Paula pulls some fabulous words out to test our interpretation and photographic skills. There will be so many wonderful photos, just head over to Lost in Translation
The Daily Post word prompt: Unlikely
This looks like a good place to set up the wildlife camera with its infra-red sensors to catch the action at the bird bath, or so I thought. It would unlikely that anything could go wrong and I would have a fine gallery of birds at the bird bath.
I didn’t count on the wisteria leaves on the arbor where I fastened the camera to be uncooperative.
Nicely positioned. Unlikely to miss anything. What? The wind has blown up.
Oh dear. Now it’s getting worse.
This is ridiculous. You can hardly even see the bird bath.
But wait. Here are some White-headed Pigeons
A Magpie has landed
The late afternoon sun on the Galah is perfect
So it wasn’t unlikely after all
Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: 2 Different Things or the Number 2
I often see two different birds at the bird bath. (search on here bird bath to see more in colour) This post isn’t all about two birds and the bird bath, some other twos for your enjoyment as well.
Despite the Spangled Drongos death stare, the Noisy Miner remained oblivious
Sometimes you have to defend your territory even if the other bird is much bigger. The Noisy Friarbird kept harassing the Square-tailed Kite
“Hey Bobbin, what did he write down there?”
There is always somewhere good to perch to see if anyone has any chips.
I thought I really should include some flowers for Cee
A favourite song
The Daily Post word prompt: Partake
At the bird bath there is room for everyone who wants to partake
Some birds come in pairs like the White-browed Scrub Wrens
Red-browed Firetail Finches prefer a communal bath time
The Variegated Fairy Wrens take turns
This little Buff-rumped Thornbill was happy to have a bath all by himself
The Daily Post word Prompt: Song
I know when the weather is turning cold. The Currawongs come down from the mountains to have their Winter at my place. This Currawong was in fine voice.
I am Currawong hear me sing
Here is a YouTube I have borrowed of Currawongs for those who haven’t heard them before.
The video is from Frederique Davies https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEXF5djuizCHyga2nbp5hMA
Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge gives me free reign to unleash some of my “other” bird photos
I wonder if a bird lives in this bird house?
This is the end of a log that fell across the road to my place. Luckily a neighbour came with his chainsaw to cut the log and I could get home. It really looks like a Kookaburra doesn’t it?
A happy bird in a friends garden
This bird is a bit more serious maybe
The Daily Post word prompt: Quartet
This looks like the perfect place to get the guys together and form our own Rainbow Lorikeet Quartet
Ok Robert, have you seen Phil and Steve? Steve was here a moment ago. Where is that clown?
Listen you lot. A quartet is four. Understand – four
Bloody hell. This is getting ridiculous!!! Can’t you guys count? Four Four Four
No no no. It’s Four. Can you please leave. Go now!
Finally. Are you guys paying attention? Oh I give up.
The Daily Post prompts: Faceless and Swallow
I sit on pipes.
One of many.
But I sit alone.
I have my place

The Daily Post Word prompt: Blush
What could be sweeter than the blush of colour on a little Rose Robin?
