The weather has finally turned cold and wet. Winter rain has been a long time coming this year in my opinion. I like a nice wet cold winter but we’ve only had the cold so far. Lovely sunny cold days. Over the last couple of days, it has started to rain, quite heavily and I, yet again, kick myself for not getting a rainwater tank installed. Ah well. Next year it is then! 😉
This is what I call a Mudlark sitting on my perimeter fence. I don’t know their true name (yet) but I also call them “Pee-Whits” and Magpie Stool Pigeons. Stool pigeons because you often see them mingling with seeming impunity with much bigger Magpies. They seem to be treated as poor cousins by the magpies and just allowed to dicker around the edges of the family groups. Maybe their colour markings are just enough to allow them to be in the pack!
Here is Molly. She is also masquerading as a member of a Magpie pack, but she would like to eat them and their little mates the Mudlarks! Fortunately, she is too fat and too slow to catch either of them. 😀
Molly appears to disagree with me on the too fat and too slow quote! Run………….
In sticking with the monochrome theme today, here are some Cormorants drying themselves on a post.
This picture is one of my favorites. A white tailed Black Cockatoo-Carnabys Cockatoo.
These are just a few of the critters in my area that are black and white. I will bring you more critters of all hues soon.
I hope everyone is enjoying the weather they have today wherever in the world you are.
