The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Thief
At my place I have Satin Bowerbirds. They build a bower where the males try to attract a female with decorations. These decorations are mainly things blue. Now-a-days the blue items they gather are mainly plastic. I think some of the pegs may be mine but I have no idea where the rest of the treasures came from.
The males like to visit other bowers and become the thief of others treasures. Here is my video of The Bowerbird Burglar. It is a few minutes long so I hope you have time.

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Rock
I have found rocks in my travels around where I live. Let’s start with some from my place. I love to find these blue rocks when I walk about my property.
The most wonderful rock I have found at my place is this hand axe. Goodness knows how old it is as the indigenous people have transversed through here for thousands of years. When I picked it up and held it, it just sat in my hand easily. I bet the bloke who lost it was rather annoyed.
This is the rock that he used to make the hand axe
OK off my place and onto the road. Down at the beach is a great place to find rocks. I also like to find faces in things. Can you see the dog?
A rock on a fence post. No, I don’t know either.

and colourful cliffs
Rocks also serve a purpose. A Long-necked Tortoise likes to sun himself on a rock that looks like a Tortoise
This is one of the early songs I loved to play on guitar. Sounds of Silence was the first LP I bought with my own money.
