Taking flight................or fright


Out exploring Hilston today we came across these trees on the banks of the Lachlan River with a huge flock of Corellas.  Could I sneak up on them?  I did, and I was rewarded with a few good snaps, somethings spooked them and they momentarily left their roost, just enough time for 3 snaps.  Click on the photos to see them even bigger, wish I'd had my big zoom lens!

From a distance they looked like flowering magnolia's or something like that, but the noise once I got out of the car was unbelievable, must of been some sort of community meeting of all the local Corella's.  Not something you see every day!

Wow! From a distance it DOES look like the tree is flowered.
