Fantastic shots, Richard - How lucky you guys are to have such a colourful and large variety of birds down under.
thanks muchly Sogs and Ray
Yes Ray I agree we do have some colourful birds.
I'm thinking mainland Australia probably tops the list though

A while later my wife had picked it up off the lawn after it had fallen from its branch.
I got a ladder and put it back in its nest so its mother could come for it. Later the nest was empty and the baby nowhere to be seen. I hope it survived.
That's all interesting to hear and see Pipan
Well done on your rescue efforts and your photos. Very nice record of the events.
They certainly aren't the prettiest of baby birds but then few are.

Hi Richard, I may have to visit you in Tassie for Wren Whisperer coaching lessons...
Dennis from what I've seen you seem to be mastering the wren captures, and very nice they are.
On a more serious side of that, I wonder if our Wrens are a bit more placid, laid back in Tasmania? Even out in the scrub they seem to be fairly quiet - as in that one I posted previously.
But it does help here at our place as they know my ways and my presence and it's seldom a bother for them.
It's often quite comical when I round a corner and come face to face with one and there's a brief staring at each other then movement from the wren. Males more so than females.
