Wild Bird Wednesday: Noisy Friar Bird

This Noisy Friar Bird visitis our backyard Grevillea several times a day. It has proven to be very elusive, hiding amongst the branches and sometimes flying away while I am getting my camera ready or just as I slide open the back door.



So one day, I had my camera ready, settings right, and I waited in the doorway...




Ha!! Got you!! Of course, I'll keep trying for more, without the leaves across it's beak...

wat het voor een vogel is weet ik niet maar hij is wel heel byzonder.

So glad you smartness and patience was rewarded! You got a couple of cracker shots.

you certainly did pick up some delightful photographs Liz of the friar-bird. Quite a character.

Having to shot around branches can be really difficult - apart from the advantage of being able to use the "poor mans zoom" on digital - the ability to take lots of images in cases like this is a huge plus! That last images shows it can pay off.


Thanks for linking to WBW.
