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

Thanks, Dave. I was lucky, i had 5 birds sighted but most would not let me anywhere near them but this one was very friendly.

My second target proved very difficult with only 2 sightings but i got 1 long distant shot (large crop) so not good quality but now i have an excuse to go back.

I dipped on my third target, not even a glimpse of one ( Ground Parrot ) but i did get a bonus with this one, one day i will get a shot of one on a clear perch.

Beautiful, Rawshorty. You must have a good eye to find them, or is it very early in the day, or so?

Thanks, Lyn.

Shots were taken all through the day, just need to keep a good eye out for them, look for any movement or sounds. Even a little rustle in the bushes can give them away.
