Recent bird stuff

This post is basically a chance to flaunt the photograph to the left, of a Rainbow Bee-eater taken in a paddock on the W edge of Canberra. Although it isn't professional standard I am quite proud of getting a hand-held shot at full zoom which focused tightly enough to show the tail streamers!

This one just places the single bird in context with a couple of its mates (in the sense of 'pals' not making any calls about living arrangements).

The following day I spotted this Gang-gang - the avifaunal emblem of the ACT - munching away in a hawthorn tree. Although a bit shady, the image doesn't do a bad job of catching the look and feel of the bird.
