Bird of the Week Challenge: 25th January - Aussie Icons

Its Monday once again everyone. Thank you for your great shots of sleepy birds and those basking in the sunshine.


Given that tomorrow is Australia Day I thought it would be great to share photos of Australian iconic birds. I will leave it up to you to decide which birds encapsulate an icon status. They might be birds that are the emblems of states or territories, or perhaps those that you just think of when you think 'Australia'

A bird that always reminds me of Australia, the Laughing Kookaburra. This one was puffing up to keep himself warm.

The sound of the Galahs always remind me of the Australian Outback.
