Charles, that's a very fine set, and you obviously live near a popular bird habitat.
For me the Red winged blackbird, the Eastern phoebe, the Avocet and the Meadowlark are the stand-outs.
Thanks for sharing.

My backgarden regulars but with my cherry trees packed with anthocyanins [autumn here] the reflections in the 'golden hour' really warm things up.

Which way then...?

2. Left?

3.Right?

4.Don't know...

5. It's a secret...

6. Same time but much 'cooler' colours in a tree with less senescence.

7. Our regular cockatoo gets the last rays.

8.

Great shots, Peter.
Never thought I'd ever see Rainbow Lorikeets looking 'camouflaged' in a natural setting of autumn leaves.
In my younger days, I never saw these around suburban Melbourne, but I remember visiting Currumbin Sanctuary on the Queensland Gold Coast with my wife and school aged daughters, where I was able to photograph lots of them coming to be hand fed by the visitors. It struck me as quite an exotic sight.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Joe, we share similar memories, we used to stay at the Miami Florida Car'o'tel in the mid 70's just north of Currumbin and my daughters now 50 used to love going to the sanctuary there. There were definitely no Lorikeets in or anywhere near Melbourne then.. Don't know if you've seen the recent news but the population in SE Q'lnd has been heavily hit by an unknown virus which apparently affects the ability of their claws to grip [along with other symptoms] thereby resulting in their inability to roost. They end up on the ground easy prey to any number of predators. As you will appreciate the idea of social distancing would be unbelievable to these gregarious creatures....

Thanks Ton. These 'cockies' often congregate in large flocks and can be very destructive, fortunately for us this one seems to be a loner and quite a regular visitor. They are also highly intelligent and can be taught simple tricks....
