Brett, thank you Mate. I've posted this eagle and its mate before in the seasonal weather images threads, but they have always been hundreds of metres away and a nice addition to a weather event. It was good to see the bird up close at last, relatively speaking and only about 50 metres away.

Here are two of the shots that I posted earlier from the Winter of 2015. Snowing in the upper reaches of Condor Creek ACT and a snowy Tidbinbilla Range ACT.

Fantastic photos Warren. I was privileged enough to see a wedge-tailed eagle hunting its prey (a flock of birds, cockatoos and Ibis I think) over our property several weeks ago. Something I've only seen a few times previously, and although the eagle was not successful, the speed and power was absolutely amazing and something I will not soon forget.

Here is a much smaller bird of prey, a very friendly kestrel who has been a common sight in our yard for several years.

Thank you everyone that has brightened my day with the birdy pics.

Years ago I regularly had a variety of birds as a wildlife carer.

My fav had to be the Ospery that had fallen from it's nest. He went to one of the big wildlife parks to participate in the breeding plan. He was such a lovely bird though his talons were quite scary.

I will post pics of some of my birds when I can work out how to get them to the puter from slides.

Reilly, G'day.

During the heat wave last February, my wife Helen spotted this juvenile Sacred Kingfisher on our back deck. I think that the bird may have been stressed in the heat. We've placed several shallow water bowls around our house for the birds. Bronze Wings, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Magpies and Currawongs are visitors, to the water bowls.

Despite the Sacred Kingfisher's habitat being Australia wide, this was the first time that either of us have seen this type of bird. It was wonderful.

Another heat stressed bird that I photographed a few years ago was a Green Budgie, in the Summer of 2013/14.



I went down to the Murrumbidgee River in the early evening, it was a hot and smokey evening. Despite being near water, a Green Budgie (they have yellow and smokey black feathers) was panting and lifting its wings to try and cool down ... both it and I were waiting for the sea breeze to arrive. The bird didn't have the energy to move when I approached it. The prevailing North Westerly was horrid.

Cheers Mate.

Warren.

PS, Red eyes.
