  1. Welcome Spring to Austraiia! Fabulous sightings, Ashley, i love them all, such pretty birds. Prayers Spring comes fully alive with the return of many birds who survived your fires and are back to begin again, filling your trees with sights and sounds.

    • Thanks Donna, thanks for your Spring well wishes dear friend, we are all hoping for a better Spring and Summer than last year, and praying that our wildlife losses will recover as so many were lost due to drought and bushfires and several species will join the critically endangered list as we continue to discover the magnitude of the losses incurred. We are so thankful our local parks have survived and the birds are returning and singing as I shared. Enjoy your week and I pray you are on the road again soon. 🙂

  2. Hello Ash,
    How wonderful to see that Spring has arrived! The males are very hard at work trying to impress the females, I am glad the males of some species are even eager to show their home repair/housekeeping skills 🙂 The audio recordings really enhance the photos and helps those of us who live far away to have a better overall image of the bird.
    Wishing you, Mrs. H and all your loved ones a blessed, safe and happy weekend 🙂

    • Thanks Takami, yes the warm weather is here and the birds are busy again after their winter rest. Glad the recordings are helpful. I believe it is good to hear and see the moving bird to actually appreciate it as photos have their limitations, and I am more into bird behaviour than the visual artistry aspect, though I do appreciate a beautiful balanced pic. Enjoy your weekend my friend 🙂

      • I can imagine with an extensive scientific background, you can appreciate even more the behaviours of our avian friends. You present the information in a way that makes it very easy to follow, and we are all thankful for that!

      • Thanks again Takami, our blog is for recreational birders, those who enjoy our birds, and those who want to know more about our birds and is not an ornithological treatise, so thank you for your kind comment as this confirms our objective is being reached.

  3. Beautiful photos of the King parrots Ashley, they are real beauties. I used to see them when I lived in Queensland, but now I don’t get to see them here in Tasmania, so it was enjoyable to see your pictures.

    • Thanks Sue, We have been seeing the King Parrots as well as Yellow-tails a lot lately being end of Winter as they get the last seed cones of the previous seasons off the coast. The females are always very shy and usually hide themselves while the male is usually the one we see often. Yes the bird varieties are different over the strait, and the climate and availability of food quite different to here.

  4. Thank you brother Ashley for another stunning view of God’s creatures. I too am glad that the Lord sustains your sight. I am certain that He will do so as you fulfill His purposes and display His glory.
    I look forward to seeing your great finds – thank you for the photos, videos and recordings that I would otherwise never ever see.
    May the Lord grant you and your wife a rich springtime in His presence.

    • Thanks so much dear sister for your most encouraging comments. I do love to share the beauty of our Father’s creation, it is all so amazing and so fine tuned to interact and work with interdependence on all the other creatures and processes present. Praying you are all safe and able to enjoy the beautiful colours of your Fall.
