I think you’ll have to buy your cockies a lovely pottery or porcelain bowl, so that your photographs reach their zenith, Christine! Such beautiful birds and the trees look terrific as a backdrop too. 🙂

Geez, Barbara, do you reckon the old margarine container is letting the show down? 😀 😀 😀 LOL. I have often thought the same, but I think it is good for size comparison. Actually, one day, I’m going to put up a birdbath and feeder just inside the fence. Then I can hide behind something at the window and get closer images. Time I cleaned the windows, too – I see a fly spot!

That was cheeky of me! If you were closer I’d love to give you one!! A bird bath and feeder sound a wonderful idea. I remember my siblings and I gave one to my mother for her 70th birthday! 🙂
How kind, Barbara. We have one of those little statue making places in nearby Tooborac. I got a bird bath from there ages ago but the top fell off and broke, never got around to replacing it. I must have a look in our local bargain store for a feeder for the smaller birds. It’s wonderful watching them feeding.
Love it. I adore their curious, “What are you doing face?” 🙂
He didn’t stay long once I poked the camera past the curtain. But that is the price they pay for free seed. I don’t annoy them all the time! 🙂
He has been waiting for his close up. Haven’t you noticed lately he has been posing for you.
I wish I could tell them apart, Sue. I think this is a smaller one than boss cocky, I think, and will stay beyond the curtain twitch.
Wow, this is cute!
Thanks Elizabeth, I love these birds. I’ve fallen by the wayside with my index cards. I do mean to challenge myself again from Monday.
“Okay, you can take my picture. This is my best side.” 😀 😀
Superb capture, Christine. 😮
Thank you Tess.
What an amazingly beautiful bird this is. Oh, how I would love to see one. I’m pretty sure they won’t come to Colorado, so maybe I should consider going to them!

Ahh yes, they do make it to your part of the world, Janet, but not under their own steam. They are probably in pet stores specializing in birds or the rescue places when they outlast their owners life or patience – they can live up to 65 to 80 years in captivity. Australia is always worth a visit, though, for any reason.
What a magnificent bird! And you caught him just right.
Glad you liked it Kayti. 🙂
They really are magnificant creatures, aren’t they? It’s a pity they’re so destructive of plants and trees, though …
A couple of them have taken to stripping small branches from the gum in front of our house. Chewing right through and dropping them on the ground. They look funny flying around with their chests grubby from digging up onion weed.
