The King Parrots are down from the hills for winter – it must be time to begin re-stocking the wood shed.
Actually there has been the odd ‘kingy’ around for some weeks now but the numbers that swoop in onto the front lawn for some seed occasionally, seems to have risen considerably in the last few days.
I reckon they have their town circuit, as it is a popular past time around here – feeding the kings. Some people are aghast at providing seed for wild birds, but when I saw the delight on grand-daughter Phoebe’s face yesterday as we sat quietly for a few individuals to approach ever closer, I’m quite content with the issue, provided it is done minimally.
Bit chuffed about it myself – they provide an excellent op for some close-ups.
