Hannahís Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Hi everyone!
I hope this thread is okay? I’d love to carry on being on the forum despite being birdless.. It would be lovely to have a place where I can share the photos I enjoy taking of the Wild parrots and birds around my farm or on my travels. And I can also ask questions, queries or just have a little chat about future parrot ownership ..and if okay.. have my little moments where think of Sunny, and let things off my chest.

I’ll start off with some photos I took this morning, I was enjoying watching this flock of Sulphur crested Cockatoos chilling out in the pine tree. With their lone Corella friend who thinks he’s a sulphur! (It’s not Sunny)







And a couple from a day or so ago..

Re: Hannahís Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Hannah, you are beloved by the ParrotForums family! Birdless for now, even as Sunny is likely busy building a family thanks to your dedication and respect for his freedom.

Thank you for sharing those magnificent images! Most of us simply dream of viewing flocks of cockatoos and other exotics in a natural state. With all the horrors inflicted upon Australia, it is comforting to see wildlife untouched by tragedy.

Looking forward to more images, and of course musings about Sunny!

Re: Hannahís Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Hi Hannah
I love the pictures. I donít know if Iím far from you as Iím also in Vic but in Albury / Wodonga. I see the odd cockatoo here when Iím walking but not too many.

My parents are out in one of the country towns and they hear them a lot in their front yard.

Ah yes youíre right on the NSW border, much drier and hotter where you are? So I guess thatís why there isnít as many Cockatoos. Iím in the Ballarat region, In the Pyrenees shire. A bit cooler here and lots of rainfall.. well not at the moment!

yes i’m right on the nsw/ vic border . it’s pretty dry here and we have had some hot days. Beginning of the year was hitting 40s. I’m in the township but where my parents are is out in the country 30 mins drive from Albury / Wodonga near Hume weir. I don’t get out to my parents place too often but I went out there before Christmas to collect the parakette and the Hume weir is getting low.

My parents were getting a lot of the smoke from the Corryong fires earlier this month.

Re: Hannahís Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Birdless!!?! That is a hoot! You have an ever changing flock that the majority of us can only dream about! And by now, they have spread the word, and have you on their map! The foster mum, always ready to step in, but respects their freedom!

Re: Hannahís Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Hannah, I believe I can say without question, you're a member of the family here, so never a need to ask if it's okay to post such a beautiful thread. I love it! Just to have a glimpse of what you get to see every day is amazing. Thank you for sharing, and we all look forward to more. And the musings, missing Sunny, absolutely. We're all here for you when you need us. You're a unique and beautiful soul for all you have done, and continue to do!
