AussieAl: 17:56 Van.
vanislander: I believe he readjusted the cam - he landed on it, then when he took off to go back to the birdbath it tilted
vanislander: Braving the lories I saw he was in and out few times when I scrolled back
vanislander: Look who's been here
vanislander: Hello khynan - I think it happens when the cockies and corellas get into conflict - they land on it and it tilts downwards. We get a bird's eye view
khynan: the camera fell down again at kims
RB2sMom: Hooroo, off to check on my dinner prep
RB2sMom: I miss the galahs at Kim's home
RB2sMom: Galahs are here
RB2sMom: G'day all, looks like rain everywhere
vanislander: Sorry - phone went so I missed Bruce leaving - I wasn't intentionally ignoring Al!
vanislander: It was a large stump - tree could be 100 yrs old - about 120 ft tall
AussieAl: Bbl, Van.
vanislander: That's the stump
vanislander: count the rings?
AussieAl: Hooroo Bruce.
Bruce: ok gotta go hooroo
AussieAl: Didn’t the lumberjacks split it for you?
Bruce: never enough Van
vanislander: Do you think we'll have enough firewood for next winter?
AussieAl: True, Bruce.
Bruce: wire's is about the only thing that's Too proof
AussieAl: It’s brush cutter line, .
AussieAl: I’m hoping it’s cockie proof, .
vanislander: We constantly have to check our lines for squirrel damage - they are our cockies!
vanislander: How long before cockies try to readjust it, Al. Is that twine/rope cockie proof or can they cut through it?
AussieAl: It still does, a little, Van, unless the rain is coming straight down.
Bruce: send er down Huey
vanislander: At least the seed won't get wet in that feeder, Al - and it seems to have survived the night
AussieAl: It’s been raining on and off all night.
AussieAl: G’day Bruce.
Bruce: G'Day Van and Al
Bruce: yep flood and Fire that's Oz for you
AussieAl: G’day Van.
vanislander: More rain at Al's - what's with the weather - flood or fire?
vanislander: Hello ABC - g'day Bruce & Al. Looks like I missed the kookas
Bruce: 3 Kookas today
Bruce: I guess it's Kooka time
Bruce: G'Day all
Rick: The west and Wales have severe flooding
Rick: The winds were rough here last night but today it's quite calm, though quite wet.
RB2sMom: Early morning coffee memory
AussieAl: It’s a 500 piece map of Australia.
vanislander: Oh good - hope it's nt a lot of orange!
AussieAl: I’ll post a photo of it when I start.
AussieAl: Joh gave me another one for my birthday.
AussieAl: Halfway through. It’s difficult.
vanislander: Good for you! You finished the jigsaw?
AussieAl: Anyway, I’ve settled down with a good book, so the chances of my trying it again have reduced.
vanislander: I knew you'd say that!
vanislander: Well, do it with sounds on
AussieAl: I MIGHT have another go later, when my head stops aching, .
vanislander: When I resorted to guesses
vanislander: I hated this one and came close to quitting - took me 31:41 I absolutely needed the confirmation of the sounds
AussieAl: I spent over thirty minutes and still had a contradiction, Van.
vanislander: Oops - did I drop something?
vanislander: drawing board!
vanislander: Back to the drawing bird for Al!
Rick: that Lorikeet is stripping tree bark!
Rick: Perhaps it'll be more cockie proof now
AussieAl: I want the feeder near the birdbath, but I don't want the feeder near the birdbath,
Rick: Version 3.0 for this feeder I think
Rick: It looks like they got it good!
AussieAl: It looks like it, or a knot has slipped.
Rick: Perhaps their weight stretched the line
Rick: Cya Van!
vanislander: Hi and bye Rick - be safe! Poooooof - gone
AussieAl: I’m not sure, Rick. I’ll inspect later.
vanislander: Now I'm really outta here
vanislander: It happened last night when a cockie was in the feeder, 2 had been fighting over it earlier - maybe weakened the hanger?
vanislander: Making porridge?
Rick: Did they snap something?
Rick: Perhaps they are suggesting new looks.
AussieAl: Hooroo Van.
AussieAl: I’m not sure what they have done, but the birdbath is full of seed, .
vanislander: Hi and Bye Al - BBL
vanislander: I have to go - quick trip to grocery store before it gets too busy - we have a holiday Monday coming up I'd forgotten about
AussieAl: G’day Van.
vanislander: Cockies love rearranging the furniture and cams
vanislander: Feeder is still resting on birdbath Birds loving it - food and drink in same location
vanislander: 2 killed off Kent coast
vanislander: Rick must be hearing the wind roaring
AussieAl: Hooroo RB. Take care.
RB2sMom: A quick G'day and Hooroo, sciatica bothering me still today
Rick: For sure
Bruce: me either but I have an excuse
Rick: Not exercising as much now
Rick: perhaps I'm not as skinny as when I left Australia
Bruce: wish I was that skinny
Bruce: Raid flying insect non allergenic and oderless
Bruce: sure did
Rick: You got the spray out?
Bruce: Van , we have a weapon
vanislander: Hate the mozzies - watch out, Bruce
Bruce: BBL gotta run to the shop
Bruce: all they need is a little rain
Bruce: lots of Mozzies out there now
Bruce: hi Van
vanislander: G'day Bruce and Rick. Lovely to see the kookas
Bruce: 3 today
Bruce: kooka time
Bruce: G'Day Rick
Rick: G'day Bruce
RB2sMom: Today's memory from the past was a Happy New Year
vanislander: Not sure how that happened - loud clash sound and Al's new feeder fell down - the cockie feeding in it flew off
vanislander: Hope you're having a great day!
vanislander: 17:44 - and it felt like forever
vanislander: 19 seconds!
vanislander: You beat me by ....
vanislander: Oh I was just thinking you'd maybe not have time for today's - which I found very frustrating
AussieAl: 17:25 Van.
vanislander: Providing us with a bird's eye view
vanislander: I see cockie/corella has been busy with goulburn2 cam
AussieAl: Sorry Van, Rick. I’ve been on the phone.
vanislander: I might make one later - it's been a busy day so far - and I've put in my order for dinner - schnitzel! His specialty.
Rick: You can make one
vanislander: I didn't actually get my gardener a valentine's card
Rick: will never happen
vanislander: Did you get loads of valentines, Rick? ♥
Rick: nope not yet
vanislander: Oh - are you in bed already? (I'd better not call then .... )
Rick: Battening down my eyelids is more like it
vanislander: So you've battened down the hatches?
Rick: Dennis the Menace is due yep
vanislander: Rick - is your storm about to arrive? (Dennis?)
vanislander: Hope he doesn't get any ideas ...
vanislander: How does Gene like being with all the hens 😉

vanislander: Looks bigger
vanislander: Is the closest bird in the aviary (right now) the cockatiel?
vanislander: Happy birthday Al - just tried to post and saw I was logged out
AussieAl: As long as they lurk, and don't cause trouble.
Rick: Pesky buggers
Rick: Two of them now
Rick: That cockatoo has been lurking for a while today, he's on top of the aviary!
Rick: One less slice of Vegemite on toast for breakfast to save room?
Rick: Very Nice!
AussieAl: Joh’s taking me to the Mount Kembla pub for lunch.
Rick: He is turning 79 so no!
AussieAl: We’re probably about the same age?
Rick: He's being taken out to a chinese restaurant by his better half I believe
Rick: My grandad shares the same birthday as you, isn't that funny
AussieAl: I will, Rick. Joh’s shouting.
Rick: Treat yourself to an extra beer today!
Rick: Happy Birthday Lord Al!
AussieAl: Thanks for all my birthday wishes.
