    These guys are sooo good at blending in..

    I think they're gorgeous, my Miss 7 is terrified of them because she reckons they have evil eyes :D She can't even look at the pics.

    LOVE EM! Sometimes I get that "being watched feeling", look around a bit and find a TF sitting 12 inches from my face!

    We have a pair that nest in one of our gum trees every year. They're so beautiful :)
    And I know that feeling Steve they're just so quiet! I'll be hanging out the clothes on my clothes line and all of a sudden there will be on sitting just above me!
