They are in Gudgenby Valley. There were 5 there on the day but sometimes there can be 8 or more.
Take Boboyan road from Tharwa and turn into Old Boboyan road ( Yankee hat carpark )


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

An awesome shot!
I found some Cape Barren Geese this morning. The sky didn't come out to well in the export though.

I see the circular compression lines.
I notice file sizes very small, 1 @ 3000 pixels wide is 178 kb.
What software are you using?

I do my basic RAW edits in Adobe Camera Raw. I've been exporting at a low quality for uploading to Flickr and posting here.

How do the birds respond to the flash?

Most birds don't seem to mind, smaller ones, particularly wagtails and grey fantails tend to jump.

Nice shot.

I'm used to seeing butcher birds smashing their insect catches on branches but this butcher had caught a small bird.

Yep, Butcher Birds often eat small birds.
Not a clear shot but here is one with a freshly caught Silvereye.

Good shots of the Wedgies, I like the last one (No 6) with the roo in the background. I am still looking for a shot of one of these. The ones I see are always miles high! I saw some last week on a bit of road kill near Kalgoorlie, in the middle of 20 klms of road works & I couldn't stop!:-(

Spotted this (Spotted Harrier) on my way to Geraldton a while ago.

It was sat in a paddock, but flew off just as I got set up.
