Pink Squares Redux

If you missed any of my pink photos, or you’re just needing another hit of pink before the month is out, here are all my entries for In the Pink!. As always, Becky has been a great host and I was, ahem, tickled pink to take part.

(The flower photos are on my other blog: Flowers by Kaz)

Pink Squares 6: Birds of a feather

Who can resist a cheeky parrot? They always look as if they are planning such mischief.

I came across this large group of mixed birds a few days ago, while a friend and I were finishing up a walk in Botany Bay National Park. Busy chatting, we missed our path and ended up on a residential street, which annoyed us as we had to retrace our steps to the turning we’d missed, but did have the bonus of this sight of a few dozen birds feeding. The pink and grey birds are called galahs (rose-breasted cockatoo, galah cockatoo, pink and grey cockatoo or roseate cockatoo). At bottom left you can see just the out-of-focus yellow feathers of a sulphur-crested cockatoo. You can also see the pointed dark crest and stripes of a small crested pigeon. I’m not sure what the white parrots are called! (Update: pretty sure they are Corellas, thanks to Jude’s suggestion.) But there are enough pink-splashed galahs here to warrant including the photo for In the Pink.
