Yesterday morning’s birds

White-gaped Honeyeater

Our mornings have been cool and sunny, inviting us to spend time in the garden, and yesterday I took my camera with me and collected these photos in perhaps an hour. Since most of the birds are so well known, I indulged myself with some odd shots; if anyone wants more serious portraits, this page will take you to them.

The Leaden Flycatcher is the only one of these birds we don’t see frequently in our garden, so I included the photo although it wasn’t as good as I would have liked. I will finish with¬†two more quirky shots:

Peaceful dove
Huh? Not-so-peaceful dove
Rainbow bee-eater
Rainbow bee-eater, of course, from immediately beneath
