Default More from the local wetland

The Australian Shelducks were acting very aggressively towards other birds last week, today the reason was revealed.

Female and chicks, 12 chicks in all, they'll be lucky if 6 survive the Swamp Harriers, Goshawks, Purple Swamphens and Foxes.

G'day Mike
More of your beaut Aussie bird shots - and as always, spot-on focus & exposure
I'm impresed that you know all their names - I'm a slacker in this regard ... to me they're 'birds' but I enjoy 'em all

Thanks Phil, I'm lucky to have friends who are expert birders and also to have the wetlands just a 10 minute stroll from home, makes learning the names easy. I still look them up before I post.
