Back to Noosa Birds

Posted by danudin on April 3, 2010

Several people have expressed delight at the bird life that, I have shown in this blog, so I thought I would show a few more, these are all in the act of feeding.

The first, a Cockateel laying claim to a small niche in this tree that someone has filled with birdseed, he had driven off his partner who got nothing.

The second is a Butcher Bird who came to our Motel Balcony to cadge a feed each morning, on this dau Sally’s son was lucky enough to have this warbbler take hame rinds right out of his hand.

The third shot shows a lorrikeet feeding on the pollen of this tree from which he had evicted a lovely bee eater that had been dining there.

    You certainly have a plethora fo birds…do they migrate?

      Migrate, why would you leave Paradise? I think all of these are permanent residents, maybe dispersing to the Bush in Good times like now but during drought time they tend to congregate around people.

    Hi Ron,
    Love these shots. They are so vivid in color especially that one of the Lorrikeet. Have a great day!

    Great shots, Ron. I have always wondered about butcher birds. . . are they scavengers? Is that how they got their name? Just wondering.

    • danudin said

      No they are hunters, but the name derives from their habit of nest robbing, following hatching time, I just love to hear their songs.

    Back to my favorites…I just love when you do these, this is the closest I see them in Nature (besides a zoo)…I am amazed by all of the color!!

  5. Nice bird shots Ron – that Lorikeet is one of your better captures of the species. Nice composition on that one especially.
