Spring has sprung…

Spring has sprung, the grass has ris’,
I wonder were the birdie is?

There he is, up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!

I’m alright, I won’t cry
I’m just glad that cows can’t fly.

The wildlife around here must have listened to Spike Milligan, and know that today was the first day of spring.

Last night our local koala was in full voice. How can such cute looking animals have such a blood curdling call.

if (FlashDetect.installed) { $(‘flash_embed-joIyAlEFoh’).show(); $(‘quicktime_embed-joIyAlEFoh’).hide(); } else { $(‘quicktime_embed-joIyAlEFoh’).show(); $(‘flash_embed-joIyAlEFoh’).hide(); }

The kookaburras got right into the singing around 5.30am, followed by the magpies and currawongs.

And this morning Squirt had a visit from a new friend. His less glamourous wife also came a calling.


Alisterus scapularis, The Australian King Parrot, is the only parrot with a completely red head. (the females, however, have a green head).

They are found along the east coast and ranges of Australia.
