welcome back Russel and what a way to announce your post. These really are beautiful.
That top one especially so.

I was actually just looking around at our Aussie contributors from past days and here you are posting a few minutes later :-)

Thanks Richard.

We've seen some awesome birds in our travels and i'll try and post when i have signal but it is patchy. We'll be off grid again for a couple of weeks now so not sure when we'll get it back.

We really do live in a beautiful country and there is just so much to see.

Here's a couple of Short-tailed Grasswrens from Mt Ive in the Gawler Ranges

A Male and Female Fig Bird taken at Oxley Creek Common this morning.

Not sure why, but on this morning's walk, the birdlife chose to perch 3 miles up in the canopy, so most of my takes were belly shots.:rolleyes:

Cheers

Dennis

Another couple of Willy Wagtail portraits from this morning's walk along Oxley Creek Common.

These are delightful little birds and ever so friendly, albeit always on the go.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thank you!! Yes, these little pied herons are quite cute and there are hundreds around at the moment.

I think this might be a Sacred Kingfisher and then we have a gorgeous Silvereye.

Both taken at the Oxley Creek Common where ideally, an 800mm or 1200mm lens would be useful.:-)

Cheers

it's quite exciting to watch these male Superb Fairy-wrens gain their breeding colours
This one is really starting to colour up. There's at least one (elusive one fully coloured), and others with just a few tiny flecks
I'll process some more of their progress and post others later
