A COLOURFUL VISITOR



A Pale Headed Rosella visited my garden this morning. It has red under its tail.

  4. You guys have the most beautiful birds there. Here not so much. Browns...greys...

    My daughter lives in Washington DC and they have pretty ones there but not like Australia. Gosh I'd like to visit there.

  9. My goodness, diane, what a beautiful bird. You certainly do have brilliant-coloured birds in your garden. (and this in winter!) Thanks for commenting on my posts these past few days. To answer your question on should men also not hinder their wives: I've never seen this exact verse in the Bible. But I do know that men are instructed to love their wives with the same love that Christ showed the church. (Ephesians 5:25) Wives are never told to love their husbands (I believe because wives/women never have to be told to do the right thing LOL!) but to be submissive to their husbands. One translation says "respect your husbands" which probably sits better with the modern woman than the previous instruction!) How is Bill? Is he making good use of that sunbed you bought him? Have a wonderful week. Jo

  10. Terrific shots of a most beautiful bird, Diane. It is an engrossing sport bird-photography.

    My book says it inhabits the eastern half of QLD and just a smidge into N-NSW. There is a variant around Cairns that has a purple head rather than whiteish. Closely related to the Eastern Rosella and they have been known to interbreed. There is a lot of blue beneath his wings.,

    Gorgeous pair of images.
