Pink & Grey Galahs

DSCN0157DSCN0178DSCN0182DSCN0185DSCN0135These very chatty birds are native to Australia. Lots of people have them as pets & they can learn to talk quite well. This flock were having a feast on grass seeds at a local park that they frequent regularly. A large flock can be very noisy but also very beautiful to watch.

Magpies in Australia

Today I was able to take a few shots of the famous Australian Magpie. This is a beautiful bird, but they have a rather bad reputation (in Spring ) of swooping down on anyone or anything that happens to come near to their nest/young. They also make a very unique noise. The third photo is a young Magpie, he hasn’t got his full colouring yet.
