This peewee has been visiting us of late - may also go by the name Magpie Lark 

It’s been hanging around the spa pool enclosure chasing insects 

 

I had the camera ready this morning for the scheduled visit and took these quick shots

I don't do a lot of biding these days. I would like to do more, but the native orchids take up most of my time, plus with the Covid-19 restrictions here in Victoria it makes it hard to go too far afie

Cold windy walk this morning, some birds are now starting to reappear. This Eastern Spinebill was busy on a grevillea and performed a hummingbird type hover to reach flowers at the end of a branc

Frustrated that this Grey Currowong started eating this Gum Moth in just the wrong place for a clear shot, could not move to a better position.

It was all over in a few seconds.

My brother does animal rescue and has raised around ten of these little rascals, plus parrots, rosellas, Kookas , reptiles, frogs, and the odd kangaroo and wallaby..

This is so crisp, love the texture and light on the chest. What equipment did you use?

I found 8 in this shot, watch out for the eyes.

Showers and overcast here today, but that did not stop a lot of the Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos from feeding on a neighbours bottlebrush.

Been some time since we have had so many different types of birds in our backyard.

Spent about 45 minutes just before lunch and managed to get the following, I did not get a shot of the Eastern Spinebill, Yellow Rumped Thornbill nor the Little Wattle bird.

Late afternoon walk in the local reserve, now open.

 

Striated Fieldwren, saw this  for the first time and got a shot!  Nice, but would be nicer if the bird was not quite so shy, maybe next time?

These bring back memories of the recent GTG at Hugh's. Such characters these chooks. Very partial to a bit of watermelon too.

In the local Reserve again today, this Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo was particularly content eating seeds in the tree.

The black cockatoos are a stunning bird. Both to look at, but they are so different in behaviour to the Sulphur Crested ones.

 

Which Kingston was this taken near? Canberra?

Hey guys I need some advice. Entry level camera for a beginner to start taking some bird shots. Been a quasi twitcher for awhile now and I'm making discoveries all the time. so I'd like to look at a camera I can begin with instead of sneaking up with my phone?

Budget? How much do I need to spend to begin with?

 

Pm me if you don't want to fill this thread with advice. Cheers.

 

*having said that, I've got a few shots that are pretty good with the ph over the years.

Kingston, Tasmania.

Peter Murrell Reserves, https://parks.tas.gov.au/explore-our-parks/peter-murrell-reserves

Birds and animals not as common as they once were, unfortunately we have dog owners, orchid hunters and bird watchers who do the wrong thing, the wildlife has suffered.

Native orchids still one of the main attractions for me.
