AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Wonderful colours! We don't get birds with that kind of colouring over here.

Noner said...

How pretty. And sort of funny looking. Almost like they accidentally dipped their faces in red paint.

Great Colours! I love how the birds all come out right after mowing the lawn... stir up all the bugs and it's a feast for them :)
