You always get the unique shots rawshorty! - those Striated Herons are very deadly little fishermen!

Thanks, Devster.

His mom/dad gave him the Redfin. He went out of sight shortly after so i don't know if he ate it hole or broke it up.

Whenever Mr and Mrs Red Tailed Cockatoo and friends visit us, we always serve them gumnuts.  Easy menu to prepare - just take a few marri trees and do nothing for a couple of decades. My kind of food preparation - no effort required.

WhistlingDuck

Fine looking couple they make Chris333.

So many gorgeous photos, and delightful birds! Lovely to see so many birds eating insects, we are hoping to attract many more insect eating birds in our yard with lots of new trees with mulch all around. I shall have to see what photos I can find, time is running out with a new challenge tomorrow.
