Hello Lainie:
What an extraordinary, and wonderful, sequence of images. Amazing!

They've come by and brought all of their friends to visit you. They are so pretty in flight. I can only imagine the amounts of seed you must go through...for the love of the beautiful creatures. It seems they appreciate you very much.

Attractive birds but quite noisy though. The photo could be made a very romantic painting. You managed to capture the "moment".

you have no idea how cool this looks to someone like me in the USA. Those birds are exotic to us...only seen in pet stores with a huge price tag on them! Lovely...just so very cool! ..not to mention the scenery in your yard!

Teri said...

Incredible to see so much life there right in front of you. Bird watching is a great thing to do. We have recently discovered so many more birds here at our new place but nothing quite as spectacular as what you have there. How lucky you are!

I would spend hours looking at these beautiful birds. That is an attractive series of pictures.

Jane and Lance...at the risk of boring some with another bird post, I just had to share!

alaine@éclectique said...

Karena....they know where to come! This flock was feeding on broad-leaf dock. We buy a 5kg bag of seed once a fortnight and throw some out to the 'regulars' morning and afternoon.

alaine@éclectique said...

DeeBee L...they can get quite noisy; annoying when you're trying to have an afternoon nano-nap!

alaine@éclectique said...

Betsy...I know! I believe they sell for $10,000 each!

Our yard is showing a typical winter day; not much colour here at present, except for the green grass and the white cockies!

alaine@éclectique said...

Teri...it's a great thing to do. Before we came here, I had no idea birds could be so fascinating; their antics and habits are a pleasure to observe.

alaine@éclectique said...

Vagabonde...thanks and yes, they can while away your day!

alaine@éclectique said...

Jérôme...a pleasure to share it with you!

alaine@éclectique said...

Jj...thank you and thanks for visiting!

LaPouyette said...

So wonderful this flock of birds! And right in your garden - with the mountain background - fascinating! I would just sit there for ever to watch them.
I love them too!

Heartily greetings from Périgord,
Karin

Hi Renée...as soon as they're spooked, I click. I love capturing their splayed wings, even though a little blurred!

Cheers
