Bob's birds

It's such a miserable night we decided to get
fish n chips for tea. It doesn't look a lot
but there was enough for two of us and some left over.

More from our holiday in Aussie.
Once we arrived in Mackay we were able to relax and recoup. I spent most of the first week sleeping, I didn't realize I was so tired until I got out of bed at my sister's home and could hardly drag myself around so after breakfast it was back to bed for me and I stayed there until well into the afternoon. I took the next few days off and slept and didn't do much else, each day I managed to stay up a bit longer. What was my poor old GKB doing while I slept? He was photographing the local birdlife and rather than show you pictures of me sleeping I thought I'd put up some of his birds :)

 Sulphur Crested Cockatoo

White or umbrella cockatoo




Masked lapwing or masked plover

Green faced honey eater

Magpie lark aka Peewee

not sure what this is but not a house sparrow

Brown thrasher

another Thrasher 

He took all these photos from the comfort of the covered area outside Sis's living area, where we sat to relax of a day.

I hope I haven't bored you by putting up too many pics. And my knowledge of Australian birds is limited so feel free to correct me if I've named them wrongly :)



  1. What lovely photos and your sister lives in a wonderful area for birds.

    cheers, parsnip and badger

  2. Diana, I think grief truly wears us out. So glad you were at your sisters home for rest and recuperation.
