I have always thought...

white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Little Butcher Bird


Little, young grey butcher bird on my verandah railing in the Dromana Hills.
The black crown has yet to emerge.
More details HERE!


My soul thrills to piping birdsong

this little bird seems familiar somehow. The name don´t seem to fit. It looks sweeter then the name implies.

You started a new blog. :) Good luck with it.
