Rough-crested Malkoha (Phaenicophaeus superciliosus) (external link) by Paolo Dolina (external link), on Flickr

A large, long-tailed bird of lowland and foothill forest. Blackish in plumage, with a bluish gloss on the back and a white tail tip. Note the wide red eye-ring, the yellow bill with red at the base, and the shaggy red crest from the crown. Forages in vine tangles for insects and other animal prey. Similar in size and shape to Scale-feathered Malkoha, but Red-crested lacks the obvious white hood. Call is a sharp “jok!”

Laughing Kookaburra Dacelo novaeguineae
An unwelcome import into Tasmania but a beautiful bird.
They live in tree hollows used by our true native birds as well as eat nestlings, small animals etc

I know these Laughing Kookaburra are unwelcome imports to Tasmania, but they are such cool looking birds. This shot is really nicely photographed, Richard! I like the old weathered fence, and the lovely green background.

That's an amazing action shot, Bill! I hope there was no permanent damage done to either of those two great blue herons.

Very nice Mike...Great soft light, good pose and it looks like the extender gave you some nice detail.

Tom

Many thanks, Tom. I really appreciate the great kudos. I often prefer not to use a tele extender, but sometimes they are my friend.:-)

many thanks Mike for your kind comments
I have to agree though they are birds of distinction.
There's two that hang out in same place each day foraging for grubs, worms etc
I've no shortage of old gates and wire the birds alight on.

Mike I really love your humming birds. Gorgeous little birds
This one really shows it off. A lovely photo.
The colours in the feathers are amazing.
They are very graceful birds.
Keep these coming :-)
