Off I Go
Off I go, thinks this Little Pied Cormorant, moments before take-off.
Into the wide world…
These little birds fascinate me. They swim low in the water, and can dive and swim with enviable ease and efficiency, often re-appearing quite some distance away.
An Egret Braves the Waves
Now and then an Egret visits our local swimming baths. On very rare occasions I see two or even three.
Here is a photograph of one of these beautiful white birds as it wades through rather choppy water.
It’s lucky for me that we live in a neighbourhood where people take pride in their gardens.
Just next door there grows a mature white Camellia, a Japonica variety I believe, and every year around now we all can share the delight of watching it bloom.
Here I am again, unsure of the avian species. I’ll narrow it down to two guesses: Pelican or Egret.
Be that as it may, I think you’ll enjoy seeing this bird in flight and its reflections on the surface of the river.
What a proud and splendid sight you are!
And how I love your beautiful song…
We’ve all heard about a bird’s eye view…
Well, this Kookaburra seems to be making the most of his…
What a wonderful place to look at the passing parade!
