Of all the birds I hear, these are the ones that always make me stop and look. A saw a small flock of them only four days after I arrived in Australia, and I have sort of adopted them as my favourite bird.
You can find heaps more splendid birds here at World Bird Wednesday.

Neat birds, great sighting and photos.ReplyDelete
OH SUPER birds!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful capture! :)ReplyDelete
Must be quite a sight to see so many.ReplyDelete
@Holdingmiments - In another example I what a geek I really am, I pulled over to watch the flock. Used the old bins I stash under the driver seat for ornithological emergencies!ReplyDelete
This was in the middle of peak hour, in a shopping strip! I think a number of people thought I was made – but you are right – the birds made a fantastic sight!

Fascinating birds! I love the flight shots!ReplyDelete
Mr.Stewart, Love those flight shots! Yellow tailed black cockatoo...Man that's a mouthful!ReplyDelete
What an awesome bird. Great captures Stewart!ReplyDelete
What fabulous-looking birds!ReplyDelete
I agree they look splendid, Stewart, but you wouldn't like them if you had a pine tree in your yard. They are even more destructive than Sulphur crested Cockies. Where I used to live I had to rake the broken branches and bits of cones up before I could mow the grass!ReplyDelete
A beautiful set of images. Love the action pictures. Wonderful work.ReplyDelete
Great post Stewart. Love the shots of the flock. I had to laugh reading your comment about pulling over to watch them. I do that kind of stuff all the time and have people stopping to ask if I need assistance. Then they see that I am looking through bins at the birds. That's why I created the "I Brake For Birds" bumper sticker ;-)ReplyDelete
