Love ItLove It

I heard a really odd sound.. One I had never heard before, and just in time for Sky Sunday!

A few mornings ago, there was this sound. It sounded like a wounded sea gull, and very very loud. It sounded as if it was sitting inside with me. 

When I looked out my sliding glass door it took me a minute to find where the sound was coming from. The giant Eucalyptus tree just outside of the fence for the back yard. 

I grabbed the camera and went outside took one fast click, just in case it flew away. My luck was with me. It stayed for about fifteen minutes!!  

This is a baby, just under a year old. The sounds I heard was it calling. And it did sound like a sick sea gull. The funniest sound I have ever heard.

  1. Wow how lucky can you get Kim. I used to see these often fly over the fields behind my house.e Now there are nothing but houses there. So I never see them any more. What a great eye you have. Love these guys!

    • Thank you Carol. I remember that one you got pics of. You were worried about your bluebirds. I guess it moved to higher ground so to speak.
      It happened here as well, the open land by the waterfall has 500 new houses. That’s why I was so glad to see one again.
