Australian birds

I mentioned a few days ago about taking a young Canadian visitor around to some of my favourite places to take visitors.  He loved seeing all the birdlife.  Here are more birds we saw that day.

Sacred Ibis – these birds are scavengers and are frequently seen near places where people have been eating.

Male Gang-gang Cockatoo. Healesville Sanctuary have many cockatoos on display.

This is an Eclectus Parrot Pair. Quite unusual that they are so different in colour, don’t you think?

  1. All of your posts are wonderful. I do enjoy the birds the most, I think. Australian birds are amazing to me! And I know how difficult it is to get good shots like these.

    Thanks Sally, I think I love doing bird shots the most. They are both challenging and satisfying and we have such a variety to choose from.

  3. The colours of these beauties are just incredible. How much fun our son had with you! I don’t know how I would have felt to have them sitting all over me, but he enjoyed it, didn’t he! Thanks Kathie.
