The first hint of autumn?

It seems that the mornings are darker when I get up than they were a few week ago, there are Little Corellas eating the fruit and seed pods in the street trees and there could be just a hint of colour in the leaves.  Summer may not have had its last dice throw quite yet, but autumn is on its way.

I found these Little Corellas feeding in the street trees in my local streets this weekend - and much to my surprise they were still there when I got back with the camera.






You can can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

I can never get over that these are 'backyard birds' ... Just amazing.

I did a double take when I read the title to your blog. Then I remembered one of us is backwards. I had to but up a bunch of pictures of spring flowers and basking alligators which makes me think spring is trying to sneak in early. Enjoyed those birds.

Corellas are incredibly cheeky birds! Many consider them destructive but I love them!
