#35 Australian Ringneck or as we call them 28's

I have been holding off on some birds because I want to get better images, but with Africa fast approaching and my family practicing with the camera time is limited.DSC00667.jpg.c3c21a6f5073f3349c5d3abdb44f1a7e.jpg

Great photographs. The light making bands on the water is a great effect too.

Welcome and waiting for more.

Nice pics.

OK. I will ask. Why do you call them "28s"

#38 Australian Pied Oyster Catcher.

Managed to sneak two quick species in today between a lunch meeting and visiting my doctor to grab prescription for Malaria tablets.DSC02256.jpg.389d60731e79daae8f379423d4239938.jpg

Thanks @Earthian and @ Galana. 

The 28 is the name given to the variety found in the south west of Western Australia. I believe it is around the sound of its call, however I have never really been able to discern it. I never really heard the Grey Lourie call as Go Away either when I was in Botswana.

#40 Black Shouldered Kite

Had one of those days when you are excited to see a new species and raced home to see what I had got, only to be disappointed that the images hadn't turned out as well as I had hoped.DSC02804.jpg.1e461cbbab8fafe9974e6fea1fe5fd47.jpgDSC02746.jpg.fe6f77f099d3be0149c87ee068b7192a.jpgDSC02799.jpg.f3e9941681eaf4436f3032aedcdcef44.jpgDSC02692.jpg.4fc624fea19c4589d21afb3f689e9ac1.jpg

One of mine too. I just love the oval face and slanting red eyes.

 

@Ratdcoops   Nothing wrong with those images.

Definitively a bird with most striking eyes! But how deep blue is the sky Down Under!!

@xelas everything very green and skies when they clear at this time of year are crystal clear. Only tweaked saturation a very small amount in these images.

#41 Banded Lapwing

This one included purely for the count. Taken from my IPhone and cropped while visiting my local hardware store. I haven't been getting out to take any shots lately as my focus has shifted in preparing for our trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe at the end of this week. It has been a real revelation to me now that I am out and shooting local birds, how many bird species are around that I haven't noticed in my previous 47 years. I will update the image with a better one if I happen to get one.IMG_3028.jpg.d9861f75ff090e923bf034d1d16807ae.jpg
