Lovely shot, and parrots and cockatoos are my favourites. So much charisma and personality.

Mine too. I kept parrots for about 40 years but am now parrot-free.....

Darters are Anhingas, quite different to cormorants although both fish underwater and sit with their wings outstretched to dry them. I've only heard shags used for cormorants but it may be more widely used.

Here in the US (they are common in Florida) we call them Anhingas mostly. Some people call them snake birds.

I've tried so many times to get a half decent shot of these it's not funny.

This is the magnificent Male Regent Bowerbird, which can often be seen as a golden yellow dart flitting through the trees.

I think #2 is a Juvenile Male (very similar to the Female) due to what appears to be a splash of yellow on the head.

Both taken in the Lamington National Park.

Cheers

Dennis

I just spent a few days in the Lamington National Park, a little cool this time of year.:-)

Here we have a Lewin’s Honeyeater and a Male Australian King-Parrot, taken near the Border Track entrance.

The birds are quite comfortable near people due to the feeding sessions at the O’Reilly’s Lodge, where there is an early morning bird walk for guests at the Lodge.

Cheers

Dennis

The Green Catbird gets its name from its cat-like wailing call. They are difficult to see among the foliage in the treetops and I was gobsmacked to find this one in a tree at the edge of the forest. I was equally gobsmacked that the R3 managed to lock on and AF on the eye through the foliage as this was such a fleeting encounter.:-)

A Satin Bowerbird also taken in the Lamington National Park.

Cheers

Dennis

Stumbled on a waterhole in Nth west Qld a few days ago and there were a heap of Masked, Long-tails, Double-bars & Pictorella Mannikins etc coming into drink. While i was checking them out through the bino's a few of these beauties hit the ground.

Couldn't believe my luck
