Two Months!

Two months until The Artist’s Secret (Brindabella Secrets #2) comes out. And here is a picture of the Brindabellas near my house when we came home yesterday afternoon (not bad for a picture from the back seat of the car!).

The Three Stooges

These three scruffy guys are the oldest in the flock, and here they are hanging out together on the power lines. The other birds rarely let them eat and routinely scare them off.

Cute and Strange

The two biggest breeds of birds who visit the back garden every day. They’re almost exactly the same size. The cute and cuddly Sulphur-crested cockatoo, and the supposedly magnificent raven – only this one spends all day looking between his legs! Other pictures of him HERE.
