Wildlife on the Farm

Tree Kangaroo

Tree Kangaroo

Well this week has been a very interesting one with some amazing wildlife on the farm, it all started with a Tree Kangaroo in the tree down the back yard. It was the first time I had ever seen one close up. I can say that they are much bigger than I thought, this one was a female and was carrying a baby in its pouch I managed to get several pics of it. The next weird encounter was with a male King Parrot this Bird was amazing it all happened to quickly to get a camera as He came from nowhere and landed on our awning at the back of the house as i was standing underneath. He then hung upsidedown on the edge of the shade cloth to stare at me. From there He went to the water tank just nearby to check Me out some more it was a surreal experience as there was no fear in Him at all. Honestly this farm is a bit like the Enchanted Forest every day I am amazed by the tranquillity and how tame the animals seem to be.
Well on the farm animal side of things the Chickens are doing well the babies are now three weeks old and are growing really well. I have planted lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage, corn, capsicums and Cucumbers this week and all are going extremely well in the hot house as it is still quite cold up here for this time of year. The hot house is really not to be heated just to keep the unwanted moisture off the garden during the rainy season.
