It's early morning, and I hear the delightful melody of kookaburras laughing
Then, breakfast time, reading paper and the busy mess of household
activities lls the day.
Time moves on, it's 4.30pm, and my feathered friends with brilliant ashes
of yellow arrive at my bird bath for their joyous afternoon chatter.
The happiness is short lived.
Soon, four-legged uninviteds arrive, and for those left singing it's symphony
For those less fortunate it's time for the kill.
Add one hour to times during daylight saving.
