I've been working through some photos I took in 2012 on a visit to Peru, and here are some bird photos.

From my Photo 150 thread


Condor in light

And another


Condor

I'm pretty sure of the identity of this bird


Possible mourning sierra finch

But I don't know this one ...


Unidentified bird If anyone knows, do shout!

Thanks, that seems plausible given their ubiquity in South America!

Hopefully a nesting pair of Tawny Frogmouths perched in a flowering eucalyptus tree in my daughter's suburban Melbourne garden.
She spotted them today and gave me a call, but when I got onto the roof it seems from the droppings under their branches they may be making a home of it.
It will be interesting to find out, and with a bit of luck see them nest and raise a clutch of chicks.

All a99ii with SAL70400G2.

1. The female from a little distance.

2. Watching me closely.

3. Panting to keep cool on a warmish (28 degrees C) summer day.

4. Her male companion, larger and with a more feather-covered beak, perched further up.

5. They were both watching closely as I took photos. Normally they sleep during the day and hunt at night, and if threatened, make themselves look like a bit of deadwood and are very hard to spot.

C&C welcome.
