I found out a while ago that gulls are like that too. complete whores, gulls

There was a study done on I think, tits, in England. I read it in a magazine in the Dark Ages. One female was observed mating with her chosen one at the nest they both had built. The male left and the female promptly ejected his sperm from her cloaca, hopped a few trees over, and mated with another male.

I was happy to see a Pileated Woodpecker yesterday. Hadn't seen one in a while, and they are close to being my favourite bird because they look like they just flew in from the Jurassic.

Here's where I hope to photograph some birdies over the summer. Out of my kitchen window, there's a bird table loaded up with seeds.



First expectant customer in the tree at left is an Eastern Rosella. Light was fading fast as it's cloudy and around 7:30pm. I'll be making use of the bonsai I think. The rosellas seem to be very sensitive to movement.


Tucking in


We're right on the western edge of it's range here in Adelaide. Having said that, rosellas are very common.

Flashy bird.

I now have this image of you using the bonsai as a shrubbery to lurk behind.

Unfortunately these aren't my photos but the place where they were taken was part of a property my Dad owned in the 1980s before the uncleared sections were purchased and turned into a conservation reserve.

This is a newly hatched malleefowl chick which the observer saw just as it dug its way out of one of those great piles of dirt. It is now entirely on its own and would have been able to fly within 24 hours

We've had several visitors to the bird table over the past few days. Still sifting through the pics.
Another flashy rosella to start with. A bit more of a local this time.
The Adelaide Rosella. Much more bossy than it's Eastern counterpart as I observed a pair this morning barging in on a pair of Eastern's brekky.

ANyway this was from a couple of days ago.






Description


Distribution is limited to the Adelaide Hills region

It's considered a subspecies of the crimson / yellow rosella complex.

Bright little birds.

I'm mostly seeing various duck species heading south rather late. Small flocks of mergansers have been dropping in to the lake almost every second day, and there are some kinds of ducks every day.

Re: Quack, Tweet, Squawk.. click!

This time of year you only really regularly see black-billed magpies and ravens around here. There are a few smaller birds that hang around, but they're pretty well hunkered down because of the cold, and the predatory birds have the luxury of plenty of darkness in which to do their thing.

Eta: oh , ptarmigans are around too, but they are actually vegetables, not birds

how come normal birds aren't as brightly colored as australian birds, do they have no hawks there or something

(yes i know there are lots of bright northern hemisphere birds but my point is that a parrot here would be like crack to a raptor)

Australian birds are poisonous like everything else in Australia, that's why they're brightly colored.

There are poisonous birds, but most of 'em live in New Guinea:

yes we have raptors, ranging in size from this



[nankeen kestrel]

to this



[wedge tailed eagle]

nankeen is a great word - it describes the rufous colouration and apparently derives from a cloth that came out of Nanking (Nanjing.)

our parrots are brightly coloured because they are bad-ass

^<<refuses to bite>>

I once came eye to eye with an American Kestrel (Sparrow Hawk, formerly) on a cliff I was climbing. She had a nest tucked back in a cleft in the rock, and when I peered over the ledge it was one of those frozen surprise moments when nobody knows quite what to do. We just stared at each other. Then I carefully moved sideways and resumed climbing a bit away. She watched me until I was out of sight.
