Couldn’t decide on the music so here is two. One you will know and maybe something new for you to listen to

 

Time for Lunch

Sometimes it always seems that someone’s hungry. A never ending trip out into the paddocks among the cows trying to find a suitable meal for the young ones.
Now out of the nest, learning to fly, they wait on the roof beams of the deck for an adult to bring a snack.

“It seems like ages since they were here with food,” they sat patiently waiting.

“Look”. “Here comes Dad with some food”

“Blimey dad, how far down my neck to you have to go!”
“Hey, I’m here too you know”

“I guess I’ll get a bit to eat next time.”

“Hey, it’s Mum this time. Just play it cool and I’ll get my food”

“Oh dear, I missed out again”

Look at that face of disappointment.Do you think that is was fair that someone missed out on food?

Dinner Time

It was late in the afternoon when I heard a Kookaburra ruckus. The usual cackling but also the sound of a young Kookaburra trying to make the adult sounds. It became a raspy sound of a young bird making demands of its parents. Here is a short photo story of the Kookaburras at dinner time.

“Hey Mum, What’s Dad doing down there?”

Just then Dad flew up into the tree with a stick. No its not, it is a Stick Insect.

A bit of adjusting to make sure  the Stick Insect didn’t fall again as it did once before.

“Thanks Dad. This looks like a good dinner.”

“I’m not sure if I should let go. What should I do?”

“OK. Here goes. Down the hatch!”

Dad basks in the glow of the afternoon sun, another lesson and dinner over for the evening.

PS I did feel sorry for the Stick Insect as there aren’t as many around as there were years ago. This series of photos were taken from my veranda. Do you see birds feeding around your place?
