Most years we lose a lot of produce to the birds. With extra netting and earlier harvesting, we’re claiming our own this year
Last week was mostly about tidying up the place. there were some Blackbird adventures and Jelina taught some weaving.
OK. It’s not the best video, bei g mainly a shot of our front security door. It’s the sound that I want to get across! Folks often mention how many birds they see coming and going from our block. I decided to video this morning’s ruckus, so here it is… Besides Dolores’s constant nagging for free access to our newly planted vegetable seedlings, I can pick – our resident flock of Sparrows 2 Wattle birds playing A Noisy Minah hassling a Piping Shrike A Kookaburra having something to say, but laughing Missus Blackbird calling A Rainbow Lorikeet in the gum tree across the road I can see a dove sitting on the fence taking it all in. He doesn’t make much noise at this time, preferring to hit it at 7 every morning That’s a bit of a fuss and the fun goes on all day!
