Another beautiful photo of your owls Tom.
That would be so nice to watch

Hi Richard...Thanks for the comments. Maybe we could arrange to trade homes for a week or so. You photograph my owls, and I'll get a chance to photograph your Superb Fairy Wrens. :-)

Pied Butcherbird, south of Darwin. These birds have the most melodious and enchanting calls in all of the bird world. Their name, however, hints at their gruesome feeding behaviour. They are primarily carnivorous, often impaling their prey on sharp branches for later consumption.

Nicely captured, Pipan! Butcherbirds have always fascinated me. Our butcherbirds (Northern Shrikes) appear to be much smaller than yours.

We visited the Lamington National Park in SE Qld where we saw these beautiful Crimson Rosella's near the O'Reilly's campgrounds , a parrot native to eastern and south eastern Australia. They are commonly found in, but not restricted to, mountain forests and gardens.

Cheers

Dennis




These birds are so gorgeous, Dennis! You really photographed them beautifully!

Very pretty linnet shot, John! The yellow flowers certainly add tremendously to the attractiveness of this photo.

Thanks Mike, they do pose rather nicely as they are used to human interaction around the camp site and resort grounds.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

A male Satin Bower Bird collecting sticks to maintain his bower in the Lamington National Park.

The male builds and decorates a bower to attract females. This consists of two parallel walls of sticks, built on the ground, and is used as a courtship arena during the breeding season. The male decorates it with bright blue coloured objects that it collects; blue clothes pegs, drinking straws and bottle tops are among the favourite stolen items, while bright blue parrot feathers, flowers and brown snail shells, make up the majority of decorations away from human habitation. The bower owner meticulously maintains it throughout the year. Both mature and immature males build bowers and display to prospective females.

On the arrival of a female, the male Satin Bowerbird leaps into a ritualised display of exaggerated movements, such as strutting and bowing, with wings outstretched and quivering, and accompanied by a variety of mechanical-sounding calls, such as buzzing and rattling interspersed with mimicry. One of the bower decorations is usually carried in the male's bill. If impressed, the female moves into the bower avenue for mating and then leaves to perform the nesting duties on her own, while the male readies himself for courting more prospective females.

The bower is more like a bachelors pad as the female builds a nest of sticks in a tree or bush, up to 30 m – 35 m above the ground.

Cheers

Dennis
