Morning smoko

If you look closer,you'll see three different species of birds sharing the Feathered Freeloaders Restuarant!
The blue and yellow birds are pale headed Rosellas;
Sitting on the bowl on the right is an immature Magpie----hatched out about 3 months ago!
And the brilliant scarlet is of course the male King Parrot.
Waaaaay up in the branches above the King Parrot can be glimpsed the female Pale -headed Rosella who is more shy than her mate. Posted by Picasa

Great photo, Maureen! Ken and I have been admiring your feathered visitors! We don't get the pale-headed rosellas down here (in the wild), and even though the King Parrots are around, we don't get them visiting our feeding station. The Lorikeets have made it their exclusive property I suspect!
