is the arrival of the
When the fruit ripens on our Palm trees we are always
visited by these fabulous looking birds.
The four photos above are of two different females,
I haven't managed to photograph the male as yet,
although we do see him everyday is very flighty
and as soon as I walk through the back door he flies away.
He is a spectacular glossy black bird with vibrant red eyes.
If you click on the link above the wiki page has images of the male
and you can also hear his fabulous call,
which wakes us up most mornings at the moment.
I managed to take these photos from our back deck,
which is two storey making me level with the height
of our palm trees where they were busy enjoy their meal.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend
