Steve – the best bird!

Here is our tiny butcherbird who turned up here as a little baby a couple of years ago. Steve/Stevie goes away for a few months a year, and then comes back and practically lives at our back door.

So very, very, VERY friendly and cute!

Canberra Heatwave

Here’s our resident red wattlebird trying to cope with the heat on Saturday afternoon. For reference, the second picture is what it’s supposed to look like – and does when it’s not forty degrees all week!

After the storm….

We had a freak five-minute lightning/hail storm in Canberra this afternoon, and this is what the sky looked like at dinnertime.

Summer Heatwave Sunset in Canberra

Taken from the car on the way over Lake Burley Griffin on Sunday, so it’s not that great!

Poor Bird!

This little half-grown rosella just crashed into our window in Canberra this afternoon. With the temperature hitting 40 degrees in the past hour, the birds are a little distressed. I’ve been putting water our everywhere!

Canberra Summer Sunset

Still 33 degrees at 8:15pm in Canberra. All the birds have reappeared for one final sip of water before “bed”. Tomorrow we do all the hours of cooking to prepare for the Ukrainian Christmas Eve meal on Sunday night.
