Let Me Out of Here!

Where there’s a will there’s a way . . . and this Corella was very determined to find a way to get rid of the chain and lock 🙂

Reeve’s Pheasant

I was amazed to read that the male’s tail grows a foot (30cms) longer every year. A beautiful bird with loads of personality.

Sadly, another vulnerable species 😦

Just as cute :)

Look at me, look at me! I’m just as cute as the others 🙂

This little fellow looked quite disappointed that so much attention was focused on the Albino Wallabies, so I made sure I took his photo, too.

Oh, so cute 🙂

 

Noah’s Ark

I love this Noah’s Ark in the playground at Gumbuya Park 🙂

Alas, my post box was empty 😦 yesterday when I was hoping it would be filled with my own Ark full of stories, poems and articles (and, of course, subscriptions!) for the October issue.

Please . . . send them in. Two by two, would be great 🙂

Delightful Dingoes

Unlike the cockatoo from yesterday, a keeper from Gumbuya Park assured us that the Dingoes were friendly and love being patted through the fence 🙂

I still need PET stories and poems for the October issue, especially tales of more unusual pets 🙂

Monday Morning

I definitely have days like this 🙂

. . . but I promise to be on my best behavior if I get the chance to visit your writing group!

Caged Cockie

“Look, Mum, have you seen one of those before,” Pip laughed. Hmmm . . . just a thousand or two every day, flying over, sitting in the trees, destroying the trees and plants. Grrrr 😦  In fact, as I type this I can hear one screeching as it flies over the house!

I was thrilled years ago when an English friend returned from visiting her parents back home and showed me a photo of a squirrel. “Wow, I’d love to see one,” I told her. She said they were everywhere in the area where her parents lived in London and many people considered them a nuisance. Ohhhh 😦

I guess there’s lots of people who would say ‘wow’ if they saw all our Cockatoos. Just wish I could get them to take some home with them 🙂

Night Owl or Lark

These owls gave us the look, and I’m sure would have much preferred to sleep rather than have us gawking at them!

Many writers tell me they do their best work in the wee small hours, perhaps because most others are asleep then.

I’m mostly an early riser but sometimes I stay up very late. Are you a night owl or a lark?

 

Guinea Fowl

Guinea Fowl are known for their great bug-eating in the garden but they are very noisy. I’d love a couple but as much as I love animals it’s always a problem if we want to have a holiday 😦

Keep those PET stories and poem coming, especially if you have a Guinea Fowl tale 🙂
