Birdie Friday

Some pictures from our morning run at the Police Paddock.
Cockies enjoying burrs for breakfast.

Bella and Dui
Dui's back legs look bare because he keeps getting
 burrs tangled in them, 
so they've been trimmed.

A steer enjoying his breakfast. Dui tried to have a staring competition but the steer was too hungry.
The cows and calves were in the next paddock
nearly invisible in the tall weeds.

These cockies were in the tree next door to our house. 
 Also, eating breakfast.

Little Willy Wagtail tries to chase Roxy away
when we get too close to his nest.

We're in for a hot weekend--but no fires near us thankfully,
hope you have a wonderful weekend.


  1. I hate those burrs too, Dui. It always means getting combed out a second time and once is enough! The Cockatoos are such beautiful birds.

  2. I love your butt walking away Roxy and great idea on the hind leg furs removed. so glad you are safe from the fires... iw ould like to see the cockies in the wild, only the ones captured here.

  3. Our yard has been full of robins lately. Syd likes to chase them but Mom won't let her. We're having kangaroo kibbles tonight for dinner. We'll be thinking about you while we chow down.

  4. I'm glad to see that you have plenty of avian friends.

  5. Oh thank you so much for letting us know about your area of Oz....
    I think and pray about your beautiful country and the humans and all the critters. Jumpin' catfish that is a B i G cow!! Thank goodness I don't eat grass it appears it can pack on the pounds. That bird trying to stroll with Roxy is quite brave...
    Hugs to HER and you three and wishing I could share some cool temps
    Kat and Pup are just precious. I rec'd more wonderful loving photos today for next Friday.

  6. It looks like you had a fun trip to the paddock. Roxy doesn't seem to even see that bird.

  7. You take the most outstanding walks. Thank you for taking us with you.

  8. How cool to see those birdies close up!

    We are so glad you are safe from the fires...we're sending lots of POTP for all those in Australia suffering from the fires and smoke.

  9. So glad to hear you are safe from the fires. Wish we could send you some rain and cooler temps
    Mabel & Hilda

  10. Dui's legs are very cute with their haircuts. I am so glad that no fires are near you.

  11. We really hope the fires stay away. Thinking of all of AustraliašŸ˜¢
