This is such a beautifully composed shot, Shalu. The colors are outstanding, and the bird is so sharp.

Thank you very much, Mike!

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

Nice Richard.

On QI tonight they talked about the way the Superbs avoid Cuckoos. They have a unique song for each nest. The unhatched birds learn it so when they hatch, they sing the song to receive food. If you don't know the song you don't get food!

A Currawong 'parent' feeding it's Channel-billed cuckoo chick. I found the other parent nearby with a head injury. I assume the injury was from the Cuckoo. It is quite enthusiastic about trying to coax more food out of it's parents.
