Nice shot of this gorgeous Crimson Rosella, graham!

Wonderful shot, Paul! With all the predators you mentioned, it doesn't seem like those little fluff balls have much of a chance at surviving.:-(

Stunning shot of this little gal posing so nicely for you, Richard!

And here stands another beauty, Richard! Lovely shot!

Beautiful wood duck shot, fotoi! Terrific color.

What a killer Roadrunner shot, Tom! Beautifully captured.

Lovely shots of these beauties, sw! I've always felt that Cedar Waxwings are so photogenic. They are a very handsome looking bird.

Super nice shot of this Ladder-backed woodpecker, Bill! He looks so much like the Nuttall's woodpecker I was photographing the other day.

Both of these juvie Black-crowned Night Heron shots are very nicely captured, Steve! I especially like the flight shot.

Thank you Mike.
This pair of Ducks started out with 12 Chicks. Last count there were 9.
Usually 3-6 survive.

Paul I love these photos of yours and this is a really attractive one.
Ducks are one of the few birds that are so attractive at an extremely young age.

It's nature but always sad to see them disappear off the water.
Watched as 12 progressively disappeared one year to a prowling hawk

Many thanks Mike, much appreciated.
