In Brisbane, Australia, we are fortunate to have so many varied habitats suitable for birdlife to exist. The Greater Brisbane Region is a sanctuary for more than 370 species of birds, both native and introduced.
The Rainbow Lorikeet is an Australasian parrot. In Australia it is common along the eastern seaboard and its habitat is rainforest, costal bush and woodland areas amongst fruit and flower bearing trees.
One of the houses in out street has numerous large Grevilleas - the flowers of these are a favourite food for these beautifully coloured birds.
The Galah is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia. They are common in metropolitan areas and abundant in open habitats which offer at least some scattered trees for shelter.
This Galah was one of a flock forraging for food in an open parkland in a Brisbane suburb.
The Magpie-lark is a conspicuous Australian bird of small to medium size, also known as the Mudlark in Victoria & Western Australia, the Murray Magpie in South Australia and as the Peewee in New South Wales & Queensland. It is a common and very widespread bird both in urban and rural areas.
This young Peewee was just sitting by a duck pond in a rural Brisbane parkland and appeared to be posing for the camera.
And then he turned & stared straight into my camera, as if to say, "OK. That's enough!!"
Thanks for stopping by.
