Huge flock of budgies in the outback, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.
I just had to share this amazing experience with you.
As we had breakfast this morning I heard, then saw thousands of birds swarming like bees above us. I grabbed the camera. It was hard to follow and focus on them they moved so fast. They were budgies, those cute little pet birds you see in a cage, turning and swirling around then dropping onto a small puddle of water before soaring away again. Then I saw a hawk diving in among them. It was his breakfast time too…
I was entranced and stood watching for almost 20 minutes before they finally disappeared over the horizon.
We were going to move on today but as there is WiFi connection here we will stay another night to catch up with emails, blogs etc.
