Bird of the Week Challenge: 23rd June - Fourth letter photo

Ok guys

I hope you all don't mind but I thought i would bring back one of the challenges from a couple of months ago - the letter challenge. This time it is the fourth letter. The guidelines are slightly different to last time (a little stricter) so please make sure that you read the new ones carefully before participating. 

Rules

  • Person A posts a photo (e.g. Purple Swamphen)
  • The next person (person B) has to post a photo of a bird with the first word (not second word) of the bird's common name (the full commonly accepted name for the bird) starting with the fourth letter of the first word in the previous birds name. 
  • So for Purple Swamphen, the next bird could be Purple-crowned Fairy-wren or Pied Butcherbird.
  • Use the bird's full current common name, not scientific name or other names they might go by (e.g. Peewee or Mudlark - it has to be Magpie-lark).
  • One entry per person per time (so if the letter is R, don't go posting 5 birds starting with R, just one) BUT you can play again after 2 other people have had a go.
  • The same bird species can be posted more than once (but must be a different photo) and there can be multiple birds in the shot (i.e. it can be a flock of the same species).

Oh haha didnt think about it that much. Just thought King Parrot not Australian King Parrot. But I do have a Kelp Gull but I have to wait till I can use the PC instead of the Ipad so if anyone else has a bird you can post it.

You might also have said 'That's a good NNH pic as you don't often see them standing in the lagoon during the day!' wink

I would post one of my many,  "Indian Yellow Nosed Abatross'' photo's but I have to wait till two more posts before I'm allowed.wink

 I must admit I didn't think about what the next bird was going to be.

Have to admit, I'd never heard of them before Dale mentioned one, so couldn't help but google it for a sticky.  One seriously attractive Albatross with it's racing stripe beak!

I didn't know there was such a bird. Trouble is the fourth letter would still be "I".sad

What a beautiful bird, Annie. Are they common in Tasmania as I do not recall seeing one before? Sue

They're are a striking bird.  A Tasmanian endemic Sue & the largest Aus Wattlebird.  Relatively common except for the West of the State I believe, although I haven't seen them very often myself in the North - not looking in the right places probably laugh

Apologies Reflex, I missed your comment re the Pied Oystercatcher.  Yes, lying on the cold wet sand smiley.

There's no doubt about it. It has to be said that's the ugliest bird I have ever seen! Even it's own mother would deny having anything to do with that.
