P1190381 (1)We have resident Wonga Pigeons who while endearing do test the boundaries of civility with their early morning, daytime and dusk repetitive ‘woo-woo-woo’. They are a large slate grey pigeon with a white forehead and black spots on the flank. Quite common on the lower east coast of Australia.

Eastern Rosellas are one of the prettiest small parrots where I live and this pair was one of three that were feeding on the eucalyptus gum outside my friends home on the far north coast of NSW Australia.

This cheeky Eastern Rosella was performing for the camera, giving a lovely view of its colourful under feathers.

Bar-shouldered Doves are around 27-29cm. They are common in thick vegetation close to water and this pair was in scrub near a fresh water stream that ended in a tidal lake on a beach.
