Bird of the Week: 10th December - patterns

Wow what a great week! I loved all the photos from last week - you are all amazing.

 

Lets keep up the challenge. I have a new staff member starting here today with Birds in Backyards who is filling in for Sara whilst she is on maternity leave. Welcome Monica! Monica has suggested the theme of this week - patterns. I think this one will be a nice challenge...

Bird's wings have some of the best patterns:

 Eggs have beautiful patterns, there are Masked Lapwing babies trying to get out, you can see the little beak of one.

I have a series of stripes, stripes in a crest, in feathers, in the bark of wood behind a bird and in bands of colour.

This theme took a bit of a think:  flight of Pelicans; Crested Pigeon wing; Australian Wood Duck (male) - their feathers fascinate me and the spread wings and tail pattern of a Western Gerygone.

I am in North Brisbane. I have seen 3 pairs of koels in our yard over the last 2 months. I love when they arrive in the Spring. They love the shade and fruit of our white mulberry tree. :-)

Amson, she's beautiful!  We have a pair that visit regularly to whoop it up in our rainforest tree, but I rarely see them.  Certainly never enough time to grab the camera.
