Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Where do birds go on a rainy day?

To our place of course! There is always seed, fruit and breadscraps out for them in the feeding stations around our front yard. Today we had our resident lorikeets, who scared off a flock of hungry galahs. I tried over and over again to photograph them, but just as they settled down to feed, these two little lorikeets would dive bomb them, screeching non stop until the poor galahs took off!
This was the best I could do, behind the front screen door. If we opened the door, they would fly off in a panic.
I locked the wire door in a partly open position and waited until the birds returned, but again they spotted me, and by the time my camera had got itself ready, there was only this one galah with his back to me, and a lorikeet whose head you can see on the right. Gosh, I hadn't realised how dark it was outside today, until I posted these pics here! They were taken about 2pm.

How lucky we are in this country with our amazing bird-life !!
I love the galahs, and the lorikeets are so pretty. We often have them in our garden, also !!
Take care, Meow
