Glen, thanks for those.

Male and female pair of Mynas again! What is the bird in the 3rd pic. Some kind of plover/thicknee?

Well, just got back from the bush. Devoted a lot of time to birding, and although I only saw 71 species in 6 days (100+ is the norm usually), had some really good sightings of some really rare and unusual birds.

Same story with the animals as well!

When I get a gap and can download and sort (2000 pics to check - the penalty of using digital), I will put up some of the more interesting ones.

Looking forward to seeing these (to me) exotic creatures.

I hope to soon post images of a few of the more pedestrian Boose back garden birds.

Ooh should be good to see your pics Kevin and Don
Our locals are nesting or have even fledged...5 pairs of swallows, 4 Violet Green pairs and one Tree, have a cool flycatcher on the same nest as last year (empid ) , juvenile Juncos, Towhees, Song Sparrows...Summer brings a bit of restraint to the morning chorus though and once the swallows are out things become relatively quiet. Heard a Swainson's Thrush this morning out the door for work today though...

Those are great pictures Glen.

That first one is a real "keeper" as well, with the composition and colour contrasts.
