They are great photos. I love birds and listening to their calls. There was a previous poster called Desert Dweller who also took fabulous photos of birds and landscapes. Thanks for posting.

PS. Do you have any of whistling kites? 

PPS. The Bell Miner is a dead ringer of my late mum's canary.

If we are permitted to request; Do you have any good shots of the "Drongo"? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drongo

I do love to see them in flight.

Thanks for that 86GTS. The Drongo looks like a cross between a currawong and a crow.

Thanks 86, they have a unique "S" shaped profile, reminiscent of the image of the "Uniting Church" Logo/Emblem.
