Thank you very much for taking the time to look and for your comments, John, Fred, and James.

P.S. to John: There are a couple of folks on another forum that I frequent who post some lovely shots of Australian birds. Australian has a lot of unique birds that we don't see over here. Where I live, I am fortunate to have a lot of different species of herons, egrets, etc nearby, so I have good opportunities to collect shots of them.

Gidday Steve

Yeah, we do have some wonderful birds in and around Oz.

We used to have a house down near Cape Otway - pretty much at the bottom of the eastern mainland of Oz. The bird life there was fantastic, with lots of parrots, wedge tail eagles, Australian kestrels, albatross, gannets and all sorts of other sea birds.Needless to say, my piccies of them leave a lot to be desired, mostly. I'm not all that good with birdies . Some would extend that comment to lots of other things as well ... - to which I reply

Our cats have a simple classification for birds:

1) Cat hawks
2) Finger food.

The first type get a silent watchful stare; the second get the wacka-wacka-wacka noise of jaws opening and closing rapidly . Since they always have a forcefield separating them from the birds (they are inside cats), that's all the pleasure they get out of their birdwatching ...

No point in taking things too seriously!

BTW, from where you live - did you know Bill Turner?

Never had the pleasure of personally meeting Bill, but I learned to appreciate his knowledge and skills from his posts on other forums. It was a sad day when we lost him.

Yes.

I had never met him personally, of course, but we had corresponded by email for years prior to his illness and death, and I had spoken to him at length on the phone on numerous occasions.

He was a very good, decent and knowledgeable man. I miss him a lot.
