Watch the birdies....

 There are usually lots of birds at the Sports Ground.
These are Galahs.

 Roxy always stalks them.
 She moves in very slowly.....
 She pretends she isn't interested in them.....
 Then moves closer.....
 And finally she makes her move!

But sometimes,
just as she's ready to pounce,
Bella or I charge passed her and make the birds fly away!
Daisy races in to chase the birds!
She hates that!
(evil laugh...)

  1. We've never seen those lovely birds before so we looked them up and seems they are rose-breasted cockatoos. It's a good game stalking and chasing...Annie plays the same game chasing the seagulls on our beach!

  6. Oh, I had to laugh - Roxy has the same approach to galahs as I have to crows (well, ravens realy, I guess) - I stalk them and try very very hard to catch them but strangely enough, I haven't managed it yet!! Great photographs!

    Woof

  8. What a bunch of galas! You know those sell for thousands of dollars here in the states....that is probably about 25,000 dollars they were chasing! And to think Aussie farmers consider then to be pests ;)

  13. Oh Roxy, you almost got one! Our boys Bill and Forest along with Azule love to chase the birdies too. We have doves that nest in our pine tree every year and they are watched verrryyy closely.

  14. I'm more mature now (or should that be "not") but when I was younger, They put out food for the wild birds. My self appointed job was to protect the wild bird food from the wild birds.

  24. Chasing birds is a good thing to do. If you co-ordinated your attack maybe you could catch one! Lee and Phod

  25. You've got lots of birds there. Not fair that they can fly and we can't.

    Good to see summer. Deefor
