71. Smash and Grab

Raji published a photo of a 'bird-invasion' on her Blog, Raji's Ramblings. I return the 'compliment' by adding a picture of my own, taken earlier this year when I was on holday in Queensland. You can see it on my Clickpicks page. I've designated this little verse ' For Children' as I think they'd enjoy the idea.


Dear little Rosella,
You comical fellow,
Delighting us all on the coast.
You've been peeking and prying
And greedily eying
This Grandmother's buttery toast.
You're eyes are so beady,
Your beak is so greedy;
You've eyed-off her toast from the trees.
And, since it's your habit,
You swoop in and grab it,
And don't even pause to say please!



Captures the bird's attitude perfectly - neat picture too on your other blog.

I like the comical way you view the daily incidents of life!

Hi Brenda. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your Rinkly Rimes!

You did well to move from Zimbabwe. We have friends that had to flee from there in recent years.
