Joey Video

Just love Christmas - don't you?  Here's my favourite Christmas ornament. Could be Merrilyn and Alexander quite easily!  I've been playing with my camera and trying for video footage of him.  It isn't easy as kangaroo joeys spend a good deal of time with their heads in the pouch when they first start emerging.  This gives them a sense of security, but doesn't always make for good footage.  So here's an early Christmas gift for you all, a short video of Alexander, Merrilyn's 7th joey out of the pouch.  Be patient.  The best is towards the end, but it's only a couple of minutes all up.  Listen to the sound of my bush in the early morning and watch Merrilyn warily watching me to ensure her joey is safe.

Alexander goes for a run

Enjoy and here's the latest still shot if videos are not for you. He is growing fast!


  1. It looks like he had a great time out of the pouch this morning. What a great view you have at your place. Thanks for sharing.

  2. He is getting so big! I loved it when he jumped over your flowers and then was playing a bit with Merrilyn. The sounds of your yard are beautiful..I think they make CD's of that to soothe people to sleep! It reminds me of a sweet summer evening here at the compared to the freezing cold and the sound of wind in the trees! Great video!

  3. So sweet to watch...mamma and son! I wish I had the easy energy of the energizer bunny!!! Are those locusts in the background....sounds like our late summer. Great post!!

  4. Hi all glad you enjoyed the video. No not locusts Donna, thank goodness as they are causing major damage in many areas. Smaller crickets and also cicadas. He's a lovely little boy.

  5. He is so precious! I loved getting to see his burst of bravery, followed by a strong need to return to the safe dark place. Thank you so much for sharing. It was so cool, too, to hear the sounds of summer (as it's very winterish here).

  6. Awww, Alexander is just so sweet!
    Loved the video, well done on getting it :)

    Thanks again for the award, much appreciated :)

    Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year to you and your lovely macropods, Cheryl xxxx
