of course we had lorikeets (rainbow this week rather than musk) and a not very inspiring setting, but this gets them into the garden...

the long billed corellas came back again this weekend.....

but mostly I concentrated on the crested pigeons. It was fairly overcast so the background is a little yuk....

unless they dropped to the ground for their seeds

These Crested Pigeons; do they come around often? They are rather nice looking birds.

Steve, They are fairly regular visitors, but they tend to be daytime visitors rather than morning and afternoon, so I tend to miss them. As I was shooting them the lorikeets dropped by for their afternoon feed and drove them away. Thanks for looking.

The crested pigeon, picture number 5 looks very nice Rafael. Another variety of birdsthat I have not seen before.

You do have some colorful birds, the only place I have seen these is in the zoo.
