Taken at a tree plantation that backs onto a lake near my home.



not sure what kind of birds these next few are











This is a larger honeyeater than the ones Ive posted before



These two ducks never left each others side while I was there

Australia sure seems to have some different looking birds compared to what I am used to in North America, Julie.

In that first picture, the bird looks to be some sort of dove but much more brightly patterned than what we'd see in a dove in the US.

I like your picture of the honeyeater and then the two ducks in the picture below that one. The two ducks look somewhat similar to our Common Mallards.

Think long focal length lens, Julie! Just repeat that thought and perhaps it will happen... :G

You have some wild and crazy looking birds over there. What a treat it must be...as I sit back and watch all of my birds disappear south

I really like the duck shot.

Norm, once most of the birds are gone you are going to have to concentrate on getting shots of things like weasels, martens, fishers, otters, elk, and bear - you know, mammal types of things...
