Spring has sprung!

The first week of Spring has passed and most days have been warm and sunny though temps are a little high for this time of the year. They have been doing a lot of back burning in the forest which surrounds me so very smoky and smelly but better than having to fight a bush fire me thinks!
The birds are singing their little hearts out if you can call it that especially when it comes to the parrots! There are so many Rainbow Lorikeets around at the moment the noise is quite deafening and they fly every where at full speed still talking and arguing as they go. There is one part of my garden which is like an express way at rush hour and you have to watch out for low flying birds coming at full speed - many a time I've had to duck! They hold big group meetings or as I like to call it a mother's meeting out in the open on the grass where they chatter, argue, hop about with a few playful punch ups where they roll around together on the ground - suppose there is usually about 50 at a time in the group - love watching them.
I love sitting and watching the birds and seeing what they get up to - got a group of King Parrots hanging around and one of them is quite friendly. He came and checked me out yesterday by sitting on the gutter above and then followed me over to where hubby was working and he got him to eat from his hand - where is that camera when need it!
All this bird watching doesn't get bears made and I've got one poor guy just waiting for me to bring him or her to life:o))

It's fun to read about Spring arriving in other parts of the world when we are now heading into Fall. Many Hugs to you from Vicki and the bears in Alaska.
