Reader Tony Eales from Brisbane, Oz, sent three pictures. Every bird here is new to me:
A Blue-Faced Honeyeater (Entomyzon cyanotis) kissing its reflection.
One of my hands down favourite birds: Red Tailed Black Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus banksii banksii) which spend hours deftly picking out dust-sized seeds from gum nuts, in this case Corymbia torelliana which is a bit of an invasive weed around here.
A couple of Dusky Moorhens (Gallinula tenebrosa) fighting, although someone pointed out they look like they might be relaxing in a spa.

Oh how fun… I Love bird watching.
I love the Wildlife Photos (and Caturday Felids!) Reminds me what a wonderful world we live in 🙂
Could I ask, from your pseudonym, do you live in Alaska?
I am an Alaskan who moved to Mn.
Just wondering, because I’m an Iowan who moved to Alaska.
guarda la bestia che ti piace che beve. Bela foto
Google translate gave me “look at the beast that you enjoy drinking. bela photo” Thanks, it’s one of my favourite photos.
‘Eat Pray Love’ success enabled Elizabeth Gilbert’s big new novel
I’m sure Jerry will want to rush out and buy a copy.
I love that honeyeater pic!
Me too. Incredible!
Three really good photos! Di 🙂
Nice job, Tony! I especially appreciate the chance to see (pictures of) animals I’m not likely to see in person.
Very cool shots of very cool birds!
“…spend hours deftly picking out dust-sized seeds from gum nuts…”
…engenders all sorts of thoughts about how a bird gets away with this strategy, time-wise, safety-wise, etc.
If only all solutions to invasive weed problems were as charismatic!
