Before the fires, Arthur used to work as an astronomer at Mount Stromlo observatory.  He became interested in bird-watching, so during his lunch-time he would use one of the big telescopes to watch and photograph birds he could see from the observatory.  (Strictly speaking, he wasn’t meant to be doing this.)  Unfortunately even with its widest field the telescope could only photograph part of each bird so Arthur didn’t know what they were.  He put the photographs in an envelope and forgot about them, until just recently when he came across them when he was working on his autobiography, tentatively entitled “My Life with the Stars”.  [He doesn’t have a publisher for this yet.]  Here are the photographs.  Can you help Arthur identify the birds?


Please do not send these pictures back to the list.  Answers to both quizzes next week.
