I wanted to accompany today’s NaNo Diary Post with a lovely little photo of what I see out of my studio window every day as I’m writing.
Normally, it’s something like this (taken yesterday, from my office chair):
Rainbow Lorikeets and Sulpher Crested Cockatoos are daily visitors to the balcony outside one level of our house. They wait impatiently until I put out feed for them. The little lorikeets can actually fight off the cockatoos – birds four times their size – if hungry enough.
But nothing appears to want to fight off this – the bird that has accompanied my writing day today. (for a better shot, check out the NaNo post of today).
