Bird of the Week: 14th October - the letter 'S'

I am so impressed with everyone's efforts last week - well done for thinking outside the box. Lets keep it going with another letter this week - the letter S

 

(next week we will move away from the letters, but lets give it another bash now).

King Parrot and Little Corella... 

My excuse this week is that the scientific name of the King Parrot is Alisterus scapularis, and the scientific name of the Little Corella is Cacatua sanguinea.

I have enjoyed visits from scarlet honey-eaters to my garden whilst the gevilleas were in full flower.

Samphire, means birds to me, wrens, chats and many more.

This White-Winged Fairy-Wren I found in a salt pan in WA's wheatbelt.

Being fairly new to birding, I don't have a huge variety, so some you may have seen before.

love everyone's S birds - there are quite a few when you look.  Dredged through my files to see if I could come up with some different ones - first is a spangled drongo, a spotted dove, the beautiful sea eagle, some little silvereyes and last but not least the starling looking glam with the late afternoon sun.

Wow I have only taken a couple of these type of birds and that was overseas , fantastic photos by the way, what are the vultures feeding on and where exactly were these taken . Fabulous capture and great to see a complete mix up. That secretary bird is one strange awesome bird indeed, wouldn't  mind getting myself one of them !
