Welcome to another monthly round up of wildlife visitors in my backyard, and this time there was a bit more variety other than just birds coming to visit.
It was lovely to see the bright colourful rainbow lorikeets dropping by. They didn’t visit very often as there were plenty of flowers around for them.
A few times I managed to spy these lovely little scaly breasted lorikeets, finishing up the leftovers after the rainbow loris.
Do you remember the baby kookaburra we have visiting with his parents? Here he is all grown up now.
This pied currawong is a young adult looking for a new territory to call its own. He has been turning up a number of times but my regular pair of pied currawongs come out of nowhere bellowing an alarm call and chase him away.
And this is one mean looking torresian crow!
We had a fair amount of rain at the end of February, making it a very hot, humid and tropical end to the summer, and as a result we had two rather unwelcome visitors.
The first was this carpet python. He was about 6 feet long and it seemed that he had come onto the veranda out of the deluge that night. Unfortunately he was only a few feet from our door, so we had to move him along and away from the house. He wasn’t very happy about being made to go back in the rain and he was quite stubborn about the whole thing!
The other unwelcome visitor was this cane toad, and unfortunately he wasn’t the only one around. This is a highly invasive species and very toxic.
My last visitors were, of course, the brushtail possums. You may recall I previously shared a video of Chloe with her little joey who are living in the possum box in the laundry. Well, here is a more recent video of them.
And last time, Sassy had a little joey leg sticking out of her pouch, well here she is with the little one now a backrider. Unfortunately, another possum arrived and scared them off.
And finally, I just had to include these photos of the pretty colours of my frangipani flowers that are out. They smell divine!
Did you notice the tiny spider photobombing my picture of the flowers with a pink tinge? 😀 (Bottom left flower hiding behind a petal).
This is my participation in a monthly event called Wildlife Wednesdays hosted by Tina of My Gardner Says… You can see the wildlife visitors of other participants here.
