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)

Lorikeet Feeding Young

Rainbow lorikeet feeding some apple from our apple tree to its young

High pitched squeeking sound
The sound of the hungry young
In lorikeet worlds
