Where do you live Kevin?
I want to move there..
Or you have some secret ability to make any bird pose for you...
Fantastic pictures as always.
I am envious..

Thank you. I live in Brisbane, Australia but if I post an "unidentified" Pic, it will be of a non-native, captive bird although I do have a good selection of natives that visit my garden and are becoming fairly accustomed to me, although they aren't posing as of yet
The above "unidentified" birds are from Maleny botanic Gardens which has a huge (high netted) aviary and even with this lens, it's hard to fill the viewfinder with some of the smaller birds. The bigger birds are absolutely manic and you risk life and limb going in there and are given a warning before you do. At one stage a Macaw latched onto my ear and drew blood! Another had me going arse over tip as it had latched onto my shoe lace without me knowing...............an interesting outing
These are large crops of some of the smaller non-native birds
