billabong birdie

Eastern Rosellas in this burkes backyard.Parent birds look horrified to have bred a Thorpedo child.Scientific name Platycercus-eximius may have confused bird into swimming like a platypus.I enjoyed it all without even leaving my chair inside. It's freezing in Ballarat right now, and bloody Summer Time starts tomorrow getting up an hour earlier than it 'feels like' - up with the birds as they say.
