I took this pic last weekend in the rain.   I threw a few handfuls of bird seed on the back table and this group of Rainbow Lorikeets appeared from nowhere.

I am jealous. The only wild life in my garden is my two dogs:floor:

I haven't seen a ring-tailed possum since I left Melbourne. Even the common brush-tailed possums are rare around here lately.

 

This one's a Northern Brushtail Possum, Trichosurus arnhemensis. The Common Brushtail Possum is Trichosurus vulpecula.

You can see mange on its face. They have adapted so well to life amongst humans that they over populate and live in stress. It makes them very susceptible to mange which they pick up from dogs and cats.

They're always hanging around my garden.

"Love" is a very wide ranging word with many meanings. Rufous Owls (Ninox rufa) at my place also 'love' possums. Preferably fresh, and with the bitey end removed at which they are very proficient.

Seeing clear, dramatic photos, often of animals unfamiliar to me, is one of my favorite bonuses of PalmTalk! Wow and thanks to all!

It was quite cold earlier today, so I wasn't surprised to see this Red Necked Wallaby sunning itself in clear patch out the back.

Little Red Desert Tree Frog, Litoria rubella. These have a wide range, from the north coast right down into the central desert regions and much of Australia. It's also in New Guinea. For a couple of years though, there's been talk that the species will be split. The desert one is supposed to retain the name and this northern one to be renamed, but still in Litoria genus. Don't know where exactly the dividing line will go in such a large area.
