This is a pair of Fischer Lovebirds. They are not the friendliest of birds as far as being companions for people, but they did raise some babies for me. They would just as soon be left alone but most certainly have stunning coloring. Pretty to look at, but Boy! They let you know when you have upset them!
The beautiful little Canaries. I have one that lives in my bedroom sitting window and he wakes me every morning about 6:30am with his sweet song!
Above are the sweet, sweet little Star finches. Native to Australia, they do really well here. Another of my favorite of the smaller birds as they make such cute chirping sounds. And I love their pretty yellow bodies and bright red faces.
I must say the above two photos are of my favorite feathered flowers here. They are also native to Australia... the lovely little Bourke Parakeet. They are not as noisy as the Parakeet we are used to here, but at daybreak and dusk, they come to life. Their chirps and tweets are the kindest little noises I have heard. I cannot imagine living somewhere, and have these gorgeous gifts living out in the wild. Mine are very people oriented, and will come up and whisper away to a listening ear.
Only a few of our feathered Jewels! They certainly add to a garden. Have a great Wednesday!
