Yes, that's probably the reason. Having not seen any for about 10 days (I'm on holiday in Shark Bay) we came across about 8 or 10 in a group (do emu's flock???) today...very skittish though. I'm amazed how quickly they disappear into the scrub though!

Emu's definitely flock.

You've got a very flash feeding bowl.

I've never really thought about it. Looking at it as a whole it looks like a basket for weighing. It has been handed down through family from Germany and it's brass. You've certainly peaked my interest and will try and find more out! It was used for a long time holding fruit inside but what ever it was it's still definitely a useful thing!

Oh, that gives me great hope for my R5 <when it arrives). I'd love to get one of those guys coming straight at me but I've not had a camera/lens combo that was up to it before... Here's hoping!

That's unusual, they usually come in threes (1 male and 2 females).


Green is good, green is right, green works.

Dusky Moorhen was hiding between the plants, maybe she has a nest there (Brisbane City Botanic Garden)

this male Superb Fairy Wren ran along the window sills from about 11 am until 7:30 pm
He tapped and danced his way around and up the windows. Occasionally he'd stop and sing to the heavens then resume the tapping and dancing.
At one time his lady accompanied him

our Tasmanian Native Hens have sing-songs, jamborees, corroboree, as they affectionately get called.
They are quite comical and deliberate in their antics, and it is accompanied by much noise getting increasingly louder.
Here's a shot of them in one of their 'sequences' before they charge off to criss-cross their path and return to continue the movements.
