the flock is resting,
young Corella takes flight
stirring up the air

Hello Lily 😉 and thank you kindly – that photo was taken in Gympie actually – there is a park there that has such an abundance of birdlife – there were hundreds of Corellas!

Lovely poem. Happy Birthweek to the young man and I think I remember that park in Gympie, though it’s been about 5 years since we were there.

Thanks seanthebookonaunt – it’s Lake Alford park and right next to the Bruce Highway – I love it (very relaxing after a long drive).
