  1. What a fantastic weekend trip and so many fantastic bird sightings and captures! I really enjoyed seeing so many I have never seen before. I also enjoyed the non-bird photos, love that grass tree, so neat looking! Definitely a wonderful gift of the eagles’ sighting at the end of the trip. 🙂

    • Thanks Donna, it was a wonderful birding weekend, especially precious to us was the Resurrection Sunday early morning wetlands walk we did, and of course the sighting of the pair of Wedgies along the highway going home. Many of the western birds are different from our coastal varieties. The Great Dividing Range which runs along the east coast separates off the birding regions with the weather, temperature and humidity changing.

    • Thanks Donna, I was more into nature photography before I met my wife and became a full blown birder, so I love to take other nature pics also. However, with my birding lens it is very limiting but the moon is one object that looks better through a birding lens.

  2. So many birds seen on just one trip! Wow! Thank you for bird movement details like ‘The classic Dotteral way of moving isM run, then stop still, run then stop still,” and ‘pelicans braking with their feet’. Makes it even more interesting!

    • Thanks Myra, It is really interesting to learn the unique characteristics of the birds, it helps us identify them from a distance, especially the tiny Dotterals. Like the Dotteral, we all have characteristics which are uniquely and interestingly us which God loves about us, and wants to bring to full potential as we entrust ourselves to Him. Richest Blessings Myra:-)

  3. Beautiful photos as always. I LOVE the shots you captured of the moon! Also love that passage out of Isaiah, it’s one of my favorites. 🙂

    • Thanks Avian, yes we do have an amazing variety of birds, especially away from the cities where we were on this occasion. We are very blessed here with so many different kinds of birds living in particular habitats throughout our continent. Not only do we have several kinds of a species of the same kind of bird, but also subspecies or races within it, so that variation occurs in a species in various regions of the continent. This all makes for interesting and challenging birding.

    • Thank you for your previous interest, it is sad that you have chosen not to continue following my blog . I am not a religious person as such, but I have a living practical relationship with God through Jesus, it is more a way of life than a religion. My birding adventures are integrated with my faith life, and I am not ashamed to say that God in my life has made my appreciation and enjoyment of life as well as my birding adventures so much more exciting and beautiful. I wish you all the best in life:-)

  4. Some excellent photos there, and what an absolute treat seeing a wedge tail eagle – and more than one!! What a very special encounter, even if they were far away. Really enjoyed this post, thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks so much Sue, for your appreciative comments, yes the Wedgies were an added bonus we did not expect to find. We actually had to turn around on a busy highway and come back to them to see them.It was quite an ordeal, but the reward was great. have a great week:-)

  5. Great series, as ever, but you really did enjoy some wonderful days of very fine clear light. It does cheer up photos I reckon.
    The Pelican landing is always a delight. I wonder if they get as much fun out of it as we do watching.
    And congrats on seeing the Eagle at work.
    Really enjoyed.

    • Thanks David for your encouraging comments, The first and last light add a very beautiful ambiance to birding photos and also trees, it was a very beautiful morning at the wetlands, and we had it all to ourselves. Yes I likewise have wondered how much fun those Pelicans must have landing the way they do:-)
