OK, so I finally got around to going through a few more of my recent shots. here are a few locals.

A magpie (great morning song)


A wood duck


a cattle egret


a blue faced honey eater


Now I think this was the red bellied black snake (though I can't see the red belly)


eastern grey kangaroo




a tawny frogmouth, lucky to spot this one, they normally stand at a tilt on a brnch and you think the are a broken branch,



royal ibis




a rose crowned fruit dove



a blue tongued lizard, they make terrific pets



A spoonbill



and finally neserfatu, otherwise known as a flying fox, in this case, the grey-headed flying fox



Hope you like them.

Very nice photos. Loved the honey eater, a little soft on the focus but the color and background are great.

Very, very nice, I always enjoy seeing the wildlife form other countries. I don't believe there is any other country that can match the diversity of yours. Thanks for sharing.

Don, jotajota (is that JJ?) and Ted,

Thanks for your comments. I did enjoy taking these and yes we do have a bit of variety. Its the isolation fo our little island. Hope the current bushfires do not result in too much damage to environments. We have had 7000km square burnt out over the past three weeks of national park and state forest, and no end in sight.

I, too, love all your shots and it is amazing how we have the some of the same birds but with such different colouring and just a bit of difference in the name...great shots
