The Twelve Days Of Christmas ... The First Day.

I thought of a great way to use many of the photos I've been taking of the sights around my place throughout this year  ... a 'Twelve Days Of Christmas'  photo series.  Now I know that the twelve days don't really begin until Christmas Day, but I'll be away from from computer and the internet for the period between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day ... so I thought I would begin this series today and then post a photo per day until Christmas.

So here's the very first photo for my north-east Australian version of  'The Twelve Days Of Christmas'.

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me ....

a Coucal in a Gum Tree.


Feel free to join in and post some of your own photos!

I'm joining Our World Tuesday with this post today.

  5. Wow Bernie, that is a very good Christmas present on your first day! I can't imagine the rest of the days. Kidding aside that is a very beautiful coucal, we only have the brown and the rare white form, which i luckily shot one morning when i was on the way to see the sunrise! I thought coucals don't just slight on very open spaces. I really love its pose.

  7. What a beautiful bird Bernie! I remember waking up to the unusual sounds there and trying to figure out just what was making the sound! I was enthralled by it all and was totally blown away by the wattle trees. Here we pay big bucks in the floral industry for one small bag of blooms and here were trees full of it. Floriade was amazing too.
