So, I'm going to cut myself some slack this week and just post some pictures of one of my favourite birds - The Pied Oystercatcher from my recent trip to Tasmania. No taxonomy. No attempts at artful phrases. Just pictures and a hope that you will continue to join in. SM

Hi Stewart, the Oystercatcher is one of my favorite birds. So I am always happy to see them, thanks for sharing and hosting.. Have a happy week ahead!ReplyDelete
very cool birds. and thanks, always, for hosting!ReplyDelete
I am really glad that you have shared pictures of the Pied Oystercatcher, it's such a cool looking bird.ReplyDelete
Such lovely coloring. I always think of them as being in black and white formalwear. :) Their bright beaks and feet make them stand out even more.ReplyDelete
Thanks for always being the gracious host!
Super series of images Stewart.ReplyDelete
I saw a few of their European cousins today but unlike you never close enough for any photos.
We so appreciate you Stewart and as always your post is grand. Happy week~ReplyDelete
He's a beauty!ReplyDelete
I always enjoy the sight and sounds of the Oystercatcher.ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds, great captures Stewart.ReplyDelete
That's a lot of birds. I hope to see another 135 from Australia!ReplyDelete
Who needs words with beautiful birds and great photos like that?!!!ReplyDelete
Nice shots, Stewart! He looks like he is slurping spaghetti! :-)ReplyDelete
They are great. That must be fun to watch them eating.ReplyDelete
Handsome birds. Thanks for hosting, Stewart!ReplyDelete
A confused Pied Oystercatcher ... for that is surely not an oyster he is hanging on to for dear life. Doesn't take away from what a handsome bird he is, but maybe you should have given him a hand and helped him find a real oyster.ReplyDelete
I have to admit I miss your pertinent comments and apropos banter, but I do agree after 135 weeks in a row, you are entitled to a bit of a break. And, not to worry, we will still be around next week and the next and the next. You will have to try harder if you want us to go away, Ha! Be well, Stewart.
