a very shy visitor

Jays may be very noisy birds but they are also generally very shy, and only very occasionally come into our garden (see link). The local magpies were very unhappy about this intruder and tried to chase it off.

 We also spotted this magpie moth yesterday, although its colouration might suggest that leopard moth would be a better description.

"oh brave old world that had such creatures in it!"

Just watched a docu on Birds of Paradise last evening!

We've been having coffee each morning (now that it has cooled off!) under our gazebo listening to the mourning doves! :0)
