Readers’ wildlife photos

October 28, 2023 • 8:45 am

Today we have a new contributor, Arthur Shores, who identifies himself as a retired clinical neuropsychologist.  And he’s contributed some photos of Aussie birds. His narrative and IDs are indented, and you can click on the photos to enlarge them.

You may be interested in these bird photos of mine of wild birds in my tiny backyard in Sydney, Australia (pop., ~5 million), approximately 4 miles from the city centre. Canon R6 500mm lens.

  1. “a retired clinical neuropsychologist”

    I didn’t know this what they do – I guess I’d request that Dr. Shores please don’t retire from it!

    ^^^attempted wit. Great set!

  2. Yes, these are breathtaking! I hope not too many car crashes happen because of a Rainbow Lorikeet flying past!
