Like most Australians I don't live in a very natural looking environment. Despite many of the myths - think Crocodile Dundee - most of us live in rather urban surroundings. I live in a suburb that was once market gardens and dairy farms, but has long since been swallowed by the expanding beast that is Melbourne.
This means most of the birds I see are wild in state, but not living in nature. While its true you can find the odd bit of bush land scattered about, and that given half a chance "weeds" (often, but not always native plants) will grow almost anywhere, most of my immediate surroundings are man made.
So, I had a think about this and decided to find some images that I thought made the most of the man made - there is not pretence in these pictures that they have been taken in the wilds - the back of Burke as we might say here.
So, here we have that most free of species, the flying bird, taking the urban and making just a little less bland, just a little more interesting.
(OK, so the pelican shot is not suburban, but its not natural either!)
