A Swallow chases a Torresian Crow across the sky above West Byron Wetlands. Plucky little birds, I’ve seen them chase the Whistling Kites and Swamp Harriers.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    That’s fantastic! Just look at those wings!!! Great capture!

  • Not my usual but I thought it was a bit fun and love it when the small birds get all feisty and brave!

    Hiya! Unbelieable set of photos you have – I am so jealous! I am a member of Birds Australia (soon to be called Birdlife Australia), are you a member? Its the leading bird organisation in Australia devoted to the study and conservation of native birds. They have an annual bird photo competition – you should definitely enter. Also, I volunteer with the Birds Aust WA branch on the community education committee and we are always looking for good photos of native birds that we use for our work in the community on a strictly NON PROFIT – EDUCATION ONLY basis. If you are interesed in letting us add your images to our photo library, let me know (and we’d be pleased to have them!). Names of photographers are always used with phots. That goes for anyone else too! Recently, one of my photos was used in a Parks sign in the south-west educating people on what birds were in that state park. Its a nice thing! also, I am not sure but the little tacker in your shot looks like a crested bellbird. Cheers :-)

  • Many thanks for your very kind comment, believe me I spend hours and hours watching and photographing birds. You are very welcome to use any photos for Birds Australia, check out my website as well www.byronbaybackyard.com.au
    I did have some interaction with Birds Australia because they were interested in the Common Koel that was being fostered by Little Wattlebirds photos but in the end said they didn’t want them.
    I’m not sure if I’m a member, I should be. I am a member of Bird Buddies and Birds in Backyards!
    I think the little tacker in this shot is a Welcome Swallow but a little hard to tell!
    Regards, Deborah

    Hiya Deborah, If you are a member of Birds Australia you would be receiving a copy of their magazine – Wingspan. Here is the website if you are interested: http://www.birdsaustralia.org.au/
    The photography competition closes on 31 December. I will definitely take a look at your website and let you know if any images we can use – I actually just did a powerpoint presentation on Cuckoos so the koel would have been perfect! Dont get many of the in WA!….:-( Cheers, G

  • Many thanks, I’ll check it out and definitely become a member if I’m not already, many thanks!
