The view this balloon-rich morning from my favourite rock on Rocky Knob.  Photo taken with a zoom lens, focal length 140mm, cropped to about 200mm (1/500 sec, ISO1600).  One object was to pick up any birds in view.  In fact, there are a few in the upper right quadrant, just specks, probably gulls and swallows. You might be able to see the currawong, also shown enlarged.  Surprisingly I can bring up a few pigeons on roof of parliament house, being 3.3km away and each about one pixel in size. Those birds mentioned were all in the photo.  It has been worked up a bit.  I did add the female Gang-gang, which was snapped a few minutes earlier in a different sector of the sky.
