  1. Hey Guys,

    your blog is fab as ever! I enjoyed seeing the pics of the maggies and common birds, I appreciate seeing them around regularly.

    The little woodswallow is very cute! I just took some close ups of common swallows at Bouladelia on the weekend.

    Hope you are keeping well. What’s happening with your job Ash?

    Keep your dreams alive!

    • Hi Chrissie! Thanks for dropping in on my blog. Still working full time but hoping to semi-retire end of June and do possible birding tours. Hope you are doing well and enjoying life with your new friend. We need to catch up some time in our busy lives. Have a great week!

  2. The parrots are always beautiful…and noisy 🙂 The pelicans really posed for you and stole the show! I wish you & yours a blessed Easter.

  3. Lovely photos Ashley. It was a delight to see the red rumped parrot and it was interesting watching your video of them grazing. But I love the pelicans! 🙂

  4. Just wonderful!!! For only an hour, your blessings were abundant! God has created such a beautiful, complex world. When I’m out by myself, I often think I’m in his church when I’m wandering in nature’s splendor. I would have loved to bird there with you that morning. I did get the sexes right on your quiz. 😁 I loved all the birds in your post. Too hard to pick a favorite! So glad you had a nice trip for family and birding.

    • Thanks Kelly, Yes it is like being in his Creation church. A friend of mine says when she is scuba diving it is like being in His Cathedral. There is a beautiful place up the coast where people get married in a palm forest called the Green Cathedral which reminds me of this fact. Well done! with the quiz you are becoming acquainted with our birds already.

  5. Very beautiful and informative post! I found the parrots cute, and all the other birds too like the pigeon but with a crest, a swamphen that is blue, a magpie with varying black and white patches, slightly different, even more beautiful
    It is also interesting to note, what you call “common starling”, they call it “European starling” in the US like the same bird is banal in Australia and exotic in US (although it was actually introduced in US I think, so makes sense :))

    • Thanks Vsweta for your welcome comment, it is nice to see the comparison and likenesses with birds from other parts of the world. Some birds due have several common names, like the starling and mynas.
