Photo taken from our veranda in Tallebudgera Valley, SE Qld. The piercing screeches of ‘ear-splitting’ intensity continued until his partner arrived!

He wanted me to stop with the camera, and get the seed!

Hi, my name is Robyn J. Blackford. I am a retired nurse who loves photography, pyrography and writing. I live with my husband in the rainforest of Tallebudgera Valley in Queensland, Australia.

All my photos are what I see through the lens.

  • LOL…I have a book on Australian Native Birds. Michael Morcombe Handbook Field Guide to Australian Birds c. 2003. He often describes the sounds the birds make. I couldn’t pronounce his description so I wrote aka Squark because that is how it really sounded to me. Thanks for your visit. Robyn :)
