The Kestrel is a wall hanger! Nice capture.


If YOU like the photo, that's all that matters!

Nice captures! Are they easy to find? Are they rare?

Thanks. I know of 5 pairs of Tawnies within a few klm of where I live. I'm sure there are more.
They can be very difficult to spot.

This one took a bit of looking to find (they usually roost in a fairly limited area. This one has a roosting range of about 50m x 30m)

Wow, that could be a great puzzle: Where's Tawny!


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

Yep. Sometimes I LOL when I spot them. Like this one:
I walked past it once, got it on the 2nd pass.

Finally managed to get a halfway decent shot of a male red-backed fairywren. They are always so elusive and fast!! :-)

Taken at Lee Point dam, NT

Astonishing. I'm now wondering how many I've walked past without noticing.

Gorgeous.
Beautiful composition. A very attractive bird.

We certainly have some magnificent wrens. Thanks for sharing Ulrike
