A great birding moment!
Had a long visit yesterday by two pale head
rosellas to my back garden at Joyner near Lake Samsonvale in SE
They are normally very brief visitors to the bird
bath-very anxious drink and off!
For some reason yesterday, they both had long
visits to the water and then retired to the tree above and spent at least 20-25
minutes preening themselves. Even the noisy miners gave them space for a change!
My new digital camera had a real good workout and I am very pleased with
the photos obtained.
At the same time, two pied butcherbirds visited
the water and they too stayed for quite a long time.
Would be interested in comparing photos taken by
other birders of these beautiful birds.
On another matter, was recently walking at
Sweeneys Reserve near Petrie, north of Brisbane and there were a couple of whip
birds in fine form.
