Enjoy these pictures from AussieAl's Australian backyard!

Two amazingly beautiful crimson Rosellas on my BBQ chimney.

I was sitting on my deck enjoying a quiet ale when I had an unexpected visitor.
I think he wanted to get out of the rain.

It's a young bird. It was on the path, I threw a little seed for it, and suddenly he flew onto my leg and then waddled up onto my toes. I thought he was settling in for the night!

I took this photo at the same moment that he flew off.
