Yesterday we went to "motor vehicles" - here they call it "Vic Roads". Man, was I IMPRESSED! They were efficient, friendly, courteous, and FAST! Overall a great experience. So, now, Bunyip is officially ours! Only thing I didn't get was a personalized plate. You can not only get personal plates here but personal colors! I wanted a personal plate in hot pink with "Bunyip" on it. First of all the color was 250 extra and then the "Bunyip" letters (if available) was an extra 225. Not worth it - oh, well!
While driving all over town we happened to spot this little guy on a tree next to a stop sign just outside my window. He's a Rainbow Lorikeet. They are all over and very noisy.
We took some time off from working on Bunyip the other day and made an excursion to the Botantical Gardens. Spotted some little birds (Willy Wag Tails) attacking a a big black bird (Little Raven). Managed to get this video of it. Ends up that the little guys are known for attacking/harassing other black birds.
