    • Yes, it is a much better deal for the birds, but makes us work harder to see them, which is not a bad thing as it gets us out and about healthwise and gives us a an interesting challenge to find them in the wild. It is like game hunting but shooting with a camera instead of a rifle. Thanks for your comment:-)

  1. What a great collection of birds and no cages! My kind of a zoo! I am glad some have exhibits or I would never get to see your birds in person. I doubt those Apostlebirds or Fairy wrens would show up on our zoo’s lawn. 🙂

    • Yes, what you say is so true, there is need for a zoo with cages, even for conservation reasons, as some species here are more in danger of extinction in the wild than in the zoo, which is very sad. Thanks for your welcome comment:-)

  2. Apostle birds are favourites of mine. We had large family groups out on the Roma farm. Their chattering and antics get us highly amused! Beautiful shots and great information as always. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Apostlebirds are quite a busy little bunch, very much like White- winged Choughs, making their noise as they forage about, they are quite amusing, especially since we do not see them on the coast. Thanks for your comment, and have a great weekend Jane:-)

  3. What a nice visit to the zoo you guys had! I’m happy you saw the Apostlebirds – nice video! Do you know how they got their name? I loved the swan and the ibis spring babies too! And that Bible quote is one of my absolute favorites.

    • Thanks Tiny, it is wonderful to know we are loved so much more than we realise ourselves. The Apostlebird gets it’s name from Jesus twelve disciples, as the original person who named them use to see them in groups of 12. This is a misnomer since they can be found in groups of 6 to 30. The White- winged Chough likewise moves about in the same way in small groups and is often found near them. Thanks for your appreciative comments Tiny, enjoy your weekend:-)

    • That’s good Sherry that you got see some of our birds. The Sydney Taronga has a very good selection of Australian birds, and Olympic Park always gives me something special when I visit. It is one of my favourite spots, for several bird photographers also. I am getting friends and family interested in birding, and they are starting to want to come out with us, we talk while we bird. It is becoming infectious with some of our friends and grandchildren. Our walking friends are not so patient with us however due to our frequent stops along the way.
