  1. A fine series of winter birds! So many wonderful captures. I missed commenting on your two previous posts, and just wanted to tell you I loved the cockatoos. How amazing to see so many at once! 🙂

  2. You have so many wonderful birds even in the winter!! The Spotted Pardalote is truly a beautiful bird – and new to me! And the Fantail pictures are great, but the Silvereye was my favorite 🙂

    • Thanks Tiny, yes we have so many beautiful birds. The Pardies are a great favourite of many, especially birders, since most non birders have never seen them or even know they exist, yet they would walk under trees with several in them. The Silvereye is another tiny bird like only slightly larger than the Pardalote, and very difficult to get good pictures of. I was blessed to get the eye shots in sunlight, as these birds move about so quickly within the thick foliage. We are off on another adventure next week on the other side of this great land of ours. Have a wonderful week 🙂

    • Thanks so much Melissa, the gift is the blessing we receive for I never know what I will find when I go out birding, it is like that box of chocolates Forrest Gump mentioned in relation to his mother’s comment on life. Enjoy your week!

  4. You managed to get some really nice photos of all the birds but I especially liked the video of the pardalote. She’s very cute!

    • Thanks Sue, I always get excited when I get to see Pardies, especially from above, rather than from high up in a tree where all you see is the plain yellow undercarriage. This little lady stayed in the one place for more than fifteen seconds so I took the chance to get video. They seldom stay still long enough to get a photo.

    • Thanks Myra, yes even with winter conditions the birds continue do life as usual. We continue keeping you all in prayer daily for a miracle.

    • Chasing Fantails is a frustrating pastime for many birders, as these birds move so fast and fan only for a second or two. The Rufous Fantail is the prized one to photograph, but only in the sunlight when its beautiful coloured tail is highlighjted. Thanks Lee for your comment.
