This post is dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] moonvoice, who somehow survived visiting our home for dinner and a movie tonight. :P

These were taken at a family picnic in Kings Park on December 29:


I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] moonvoice isn't sick of hearing just how awesome her art is just yet, so here is a closeup of a piece that [livejournal.com profile] linstar received for her birthday:

I encourage you all to rush out and throw money at her for prints or originals of her wonderful art; I love many of her pieces.

Aw thank you!

Incidentally, the 'crows' that you saw are actually Corvus coronoides; or the Australian Raven. Believe it or not, pretty much all the solid black, 'crow like' birds we get in South-West Western Australia is the adaptable, smart, white-eyed Australian Raven. And they are awesome.

I LOVE those pictures. The magpie is a juvenile. And in the second, the raven in the forefront is a juvenile, and the one behind it is the parent (because it has the white iris). Eeeee! Bird squee.

And I had a really good time last night! You guys are great company. :)

Hah, you made me double check to make sure I really did write 'Raven' rather than 'Crow' in the image title text (I did, phew). But yes, I did have the feeling that crows are an American thing. We'd managed to notice that the magpie was a juvenile, but not the raven. All the birds in Kings Park seem very tame and approachable.

I'm glad you had a good time. I should probably fix the DVD player at some point though (I've done it before; it just needs about half a drop of oil in a couple of places). :P

We do have a crow, the little crow in the South-West, but it is extremely uncommon.

Heh, as for the DVD, I didn't mind. :)

CUTE JUVENILE RAVEN ♥ I love the young ones' light blue/white eyes. The twenty-eight parrot's adorable too, I love the way those little guys walk.

That art is spectacular. One day I'll make something so pretty! I swears it!
