Some weeks ago in Kingscliff (NSW) I saw this curlew with a young one (on her right side). The area around their nest (close to the beach) was made a restricted area for the time being, very bird-friendly of the people there.

My money is on Toulouse:
Colour; Bill, legs and feet are orange. Plumage various shades of grey, each feather laced with a white edging. Paunch & tail are white.

Thanks guys, local consensus seems to be that these are Domestic Geese, bred from Greylags. These guys are out in the wild and are self sustaining, but aren't listed in any of the guides.

Cheers
Gus

I got lucky with this one. They didn't fly away as I got to the tree.

I'm pretty sure they're Noisy Miners - can anyone confirm?

Nice one, Lyn.
A lot of councils are fencing of breeding areas on beaches for a large variety of nesting birds these days. Good to see.


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

They are Yellow-throated Miners, Lewis. ( Grey crown and white rump )
Noisy miners are on the East of OZ.

Went out to see the local Owlet-nightjars yesterday.
I hope that this Winter i will get a shot of the whole bird when they sun themselves.

When a male Superb Fairy-wren reaches 4-5 years of age he no longer moults out of breeding plumage.
But this makes him a stand out for predators and tends not to last too long.
Was lucky to find one on the weekend.
