Today's ABC Open photos

Budgie swarm
By D. Joshua Brunner ·  · From Pic of the Week
I found this out on Peedamulla road, near Onslow in Western Australia – there were literally millions of budgies all rocketing around.   After the rains we had a few months ago, we have had various population explosions. It started with beetles, then grasshoppers and now these little birds.   I can only compare them to huge flocks of starlings.      Published 22 May 2017.  Onslow WA 6710
