Down By The River

After several days of being stuck inside because of rain it was good to be able to get out of the house on Tuesday and stretch our legs with a walk along the river.

 I even remembered to take my camera, so here are a few photos I took along the way.

 A pair of Adelaide rosellas enjoying the abundant supply of water in the river that until a few weeks ago was as dry as a bone.

 Time for a dip.

Another perched high in a eucalyptus tree.

Kookaburras sitting in an old gum tree.

A pair of Rainbow Lorikeets, he kept spreading his wings and flapping them rapidly. I think he was trying to impress her.

Living in the hollow next door,  a pair of Musk Lorikeets. The two pairs of birds were having a neighbourly dispute with each other just before I took these photos.

And a lone Australian Wood Duck.


  1. Poor lone duck. I wonder where the partner is.
    Lovely commentary on the bird happenings.

  2. Lovely photos of the birds. Looks like you have had a bit of rain, we got 6mm yesterday but desperately need some more, very dry here. That pear and almond gluten free cake in your last post looks yum, I will give the recipe a try later this week, always looking for new gluten free recipes to have a go at.
