Season's Greetings to you! That's another great assortment of bush birds. I'm a bit envious since I've only been seeing shorebirds recently. I guess I am looking in the wrong places for bush birds :-)

Love the smooth colouring of the flycatcher and the sacred kingfisher is certainly connected with the kookaburra shape!

Thats a nice collection of birds - I'd like to see the Pale Headed. I think I may have to check out this B and B

Aren't birds such exquisite creatures? The little Leaden Flycatcher is a delight and of course so is the gorgeous Sacred Kingfisher. Beautiful clear captures.

What a beautiful group of birds you have presented here!

So beautiful Neil...thank you for sharing them (all birds I'll probably never see...so many birds, so little time ;>).....The rosella is just heavenly. We do have kingfishers here (one of my goals is to get a decent picture of one)...but ours are definitely not sacred ;>).

Hi Neil and a Happy New Year to you too!
Love the beautiful photos you've taken on your colourful birds! We don't see any of those I think, in my country Sweden.
