ScrapStuffz for July ...

A sweet little inspiration picture at ScrapStuffz "Inspired by" this month.


I love birds - our home backs a National Park we get so much bird life in the trees behind our house an coming to visit our yard and venture into our street.  An entire family of kookaburras, sulphur crested white cockatoos, pink and grey gullah's, magpies, ducks, blue wrens, willy wagtails, plovers ... just to name a few.  We are so lucky.

Here we have a visiting white cockatoo.  These guys are regular visitors to urban areas.  They are a large white parrot with a distinctive sulphur-yellow crest and a yellow wash on the underside of the wings. They do make for noisy neighbours with a distinctive loud screech, ending with a slight upward inflection. They are also popular caged birds and can live up to eighty years of age in captivity.

I love your LO Jane! My husband would be jealous of all the birds you have around you. He adores birds. Thank you so much for joining us at SSIB!

We had several birds when we were first married and had to rehome them do to noise and biting...I still enjoy seeing them out and about though. Thanks for joining us at SSIB
