  1. Lovely photos of the tawny frogmouths Ashley, and how lucky to see the kingfisher. Enjoyed the cockatoo photos, those birds are always planning some sort of evil destruction! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, yes it has taken several visits to the Froggies to get the photo of her looking at me, and with reasonable light, as they are in a tree shielded a bit from the sun. The Kingfisher was a stunner, and to be so close to such a shy bird was amazing. It quite surprised it. Yes, as you know well, the Cockies are naughty by nature, and even worse in a flock. Enjoy your week!

    • Thanks Myra, I have never seen the Cockies conversing in this way before, I just had to capture it. Looked like something important was going down.

    • Thanks Kathy, the Frogmouths are quite unique looking birds and masters of camouflage. The Kingfisher is so bright in the sunshine, you just can’t miss it as small as it is.

  2. That kingfisher is so beautiful! I’m so happy for you that you got to enjoy it close up. Our kingfishers are extremely shy as well so I can totally relate.
