Wow Paul. I love this shot...so nicely done. The "butcher bird" is one of my favorite predator birds. I enjoy watching them at work.

A chick only it's mother could love. :lol: Nice one, Mike.

Here's another photograph to give some perspective on nest.

Thanks for the extras. Certainly adds to the overall experience.
Those cacti are impressive.

A couple of hummingbirds. These birds are so tiny, yet some look so tough.

I can sure see why you love them, Richard. They are adorable looking birds, for sure.

Many thanks for your kind comments Mike
The Silvereye is very shy & diminutive and I was thrilled to see it.

Nice! I'm guessing you snatched a moment when it got its head out of the water... but I love the water drop.
