They were introduced to the United States well over 100 years ago and are now one our most common birds. This is probably the main reason this attractive bird is overlooked. Grackles which look much like Starlings, including my favorite, the Boat-tailed Grackle, also fall into this category.

This is one of the birds that destroyed the Green Heron's nest. They rebuilt the nest nearby and are incubating eggs but there are too many obstructions in the way to photograph it.
Same as above. 1/3299, F5.6, 230mm.

Moorhen does not notice the Brown water snake. Fortunately it was mutual.

Four weeks after posting pictures of a (hopefully nesting) pair of Tawny Frogmouths in my daughter's garden, I got a call this afternoon to say there was one roosting in a Casuarina tree at the front of her house.
Here are some of the photos I took.
All a77ii and SAL70400G2 - my favourite tried and true wildlife combo.
I thought it may have been one of the pair I saw before, but after uploading the photos to my computer and comparing plumage markings, established this is a third specimen. They obviously like the mature native trees in the garden, and presumably there's ample food source in the neighbourhood.
C&C welcome.

What a funny bird.
And patient too, given the number of successful shots.
Particularly like the profile shots (#3)
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Just a red kite from a raptor station near vienna - hoping the weather allows me to go back out there taking more pictures of these magnificent birds.





They are quite a challenge to get good pictures - shows how much I still have to learn
