Mixed Birds.

 Just a few mixed birds we have seen around our area.

 Australian Hobby (Falco longipennis)
This Australian Hobby was a case of being in the right place at the right time.
 Fan-tailed Cuckoo (Cacomantis flabelliformis)
The Fan-tailed Cuckoo and Noisy Pitta we saw at Bymien Picnic Area in Cooloola National Park.
Noisy Pitta (Pitta versicolor)
For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday.

Fantastic birds. I wish I knew how to be in the right place at the right time - there must be some trick to it!! Great photos.

Hi Neil, enjoyed your bird shots. Hadn't seen a Cuckoo, or gotten close enough to a Falcon to photograph. Well done :D)
