Today's bird is the Grey Shrike-Thrush. It doesn't look spectacular like the Parrots, but it has a beautiful song.

Our King Parrots dropped in for a feed today again (yesterday was wet and so I think they were off sheltered somewhere).

Don't fret bird fans! Despite having to go in to the office today, I still came through with the goods.

Here's an unusual Australian Magpie with leucism (a condition that means the bird produces less melatonin than normal).

It is cold (for Queensland) this morning and so the parrots managed to convince me to give them second breakfast.

I forgot to post yesterday's new birdfeeder visitor - a Rainbow Lorikeet, who kicked the King Parrots off the feeder.

Lorikeets are the drunken louts of the bird world.

Youโ€™re probably all sick of these Parrots by now, but they keep visiting so I keep photographing them.

We popped out to Dayboro and Samford and when we got home, there were very expectant parrots hanging around hopeful for seed. So I spoke to them and told them I had to go inside to fetch the seed, and they seemed to understand.

Most of the shots are on the 200mm f/1.8 with 2x TC (400mm f/3.5) but I included one at 85mm f/1.2 to show the feeder in context.

The bird feeder was quite busy this morning. Raiding Cockatoos and a fair bit of too and fro between the King Parrots and the Pied Currawong.

I even had a female Satin Bowerbird turn up, but she did not want to be photographed.

On campus today and I found this bundle of cute-overload. A Mumma Brush-tailed Possum with a joey on her back.

A Red-browed Finch from late yesterday afternoon, and my regular King Parrots from today. The parrots were shot over ethernet (i.e. I plugged the camera in to the network, connected to it via a web browser, and triggered from the comfort of my desk).

Eastern brown (Pseudonaja textilis). Venomous!

Went back out and managed to sneak a shot of the Rainbow Lorikeet, and then I went for a walk down the road and got a magpie, and a crimson rosella, and another crimson rosella when I got back home.
