Warbling Magpie

Young Magpie warbling (singing) away in the backyard, Melbourne, Australia.


Here is another Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae) this time displaying the blue wing colouring and the unusual red and black bars on the tail. They are members of the kingfisher family and therefore voracious feeders. They tend to eat insects, worms and crustaceans, but will also eat small snakes, mammals, frogs and bird hatchlings. I have observed more than once Kookaburras trying to tap through nests in walls to get at hatchlings but have yet to see one succeed. View Large…

Portrait of an Australian Magpie. Not related to the European / North American Magpie. It's actually a type of piebald crow. Very smart and gregarious. They live in very tight family groups and have a wide range of verbalisations. They are responsible for an iconic sound in theAussie bush ..... a beautiful melodic warble. Hellish hard to photograph because the contrast in their feathers exceeds the dynamic range of cameras and screens. What happens most is that their eyes disappear into…

Photographing at Red Hill Nature Reserve on Saturday, 24 November 2018 - Rainbow Lorikeets and some more insects — Birds in Canberra

My motivation for getting out of bed before the sun rises on a Saturday morning is the knowledge that I will be shortly walking around Red Hill Nature Reserve photographing something interesting. I never try to anticipate what I will see on the hill that day, I just know I will see something. On this morning, I was so glad to see Rainbow Lorikeets. As I said in a previous post, I really have a soft spot for these engaging parrots as they were always around when I was growing up in…
