Elizabeth - love the bird shots - but really love your yard and surroundings! Looks very warm and charming.

Great photos everyone! Have fun with your new camera Cathy. Elizabeth, maybe your hummer is wearing hot pink lipstick! Ah woodpeckers, haven't seen ANY for quite a while and they are usually around. Love the Red Belly Woodpecker. I see them when I visit the family in PA.

I've been looking for a good, small, easily portable camera and think I finally found it. I love my DSLR but it isn't perfect for a number of venues. I bought the Canon Powershot SX210 IS. Here is one of my first photos - unretouched and uncropped. I am totally impressed!

What incredible birds Bernadette! It's what we have to pay to see at zoos! I am anxious to make a road trip into Georgia for a photo safari, but it has been dangerously hot here with no end in site.

I can't think of a better way to start the day than by checking out this site. Great photos!

These magnificent birds are regular visitors to our place here in north-eastern Australia. They are loud and raucous ... you can hear them long before you see them! They are the large Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo - Calyptorhynchus banksi macrorhynchus.

Here's the male ... he is jet black, with a broad band of bright red in his tail and a dark grey beak.


Here's the female ... she is a duller black, with yellow speckles on the head and breast, and yellow patches in her tail. Her beak is whitish in colour.


Around my place they are a common sight throughout the year ... and we often see groups of male/female pairs feasting on the seeds or fruits of our Eucalyptus or Acacia trees.
