  1. You saw wonderful flowers and birds ! And the video of the tranquil lake was very beautiful! Greetings from the African variants of many of our/your birds 🙂

    • Thanks Tiny, and looking forward to your African birding adventure photos, hope you get some great ones! Africa follows South America in the largest number of bird species, so it should be quite a feast if you can find them. It is true each continent has its own variants of the same for the ecological balance of God’s economy. You must be seeing many lifers, how wonderful for you my dear friend! 🙂

      • I have the same problem in Australia with small birds in high trees but the main difference I noted when in Britain (which has similar trees to yours) was the amount of light in the light green leaves compared to our very dark green heavily foliated trees. I have come to realise why it is much harder for me to photograph many of our birds and get clear non noisy pics. The other problem is that our smallest birds all move non stop, they never stop still for more than two seconds so by the time you set up your lens and focus they are already in their next position. I would think the trees are more similar to ours than yours in Africa as far as light density, which will offer a challenge. I had to ditch over 20 gig of my pics from Tassie because of the these above problems. Have a great time away my dear birding friend:-)

    • Thank you Donna, yes Spring is a wonderful time in the Australian bush as it is in the beautiful gardens you feature in your posts! We still have many wild flowers out even in the heat of summer, though many have finished now.

  2. It is so interesting to see other country’s Robins, yours is so vibrant and beautiful! Loved your ambience video too, I can sit on a dock or in a boat and just watch the water, so very relaxing and mind-clearing. Love your Great Pied Currawong in flight capture too! Great post as usual of so many birds, such variety!

    • Thanks so much Donna! Our Robins are the taste of many birders in the world, as we have so many different varieties. I found some more new ones this week which I will feature in a later post. Yes, I love the ambience of the water also, and the stillness and quietness as it laps relentlessly, and time stops, as you dissolve into its tranquility. Have a wonderful week Donna!

  3. Great post and I agree with you wholeheartedly about the pied currawongs. They are one of my all time favourite birds. I love the calls they make and from my experience they are very intelligent birds.

    • Thanks Sue, They are amazing birds. I am currently in Tassie exploring the Black and Grey Currawongs which are amazing birds also. The Black Currawong has an amazing loud trumpet sounding call. I will feature it in a later post. Enjoy your week!

    • Thanks Lee, Yes that last photo was a really special capture as this bird is difficult to catch in flight with full wing spread. I am currently chasing its cousin the Black Currawong in another state which I will feature in a later post. Have a great week!
