A sliver of sunshine

We had some welcome sunshine at various times today – I managed to get out late this afternoon to enjoy it with the birds.

  1. Stunning shot of the cockies.
    The corellas put on an amazing show in the evening in Guilford as the sun goes down .I saw it the other week ,I can only describe it as a natural phenomenon! they formed amazing shapes including a banjo shape over the Guilford pub!
    Cheers Andy

  2. Dear Geoff I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your photos – it really cheers me up to see such gorgeous photos of gorgeous birds Thank you! Kaz

  3. What good group shots. The Cockatoos make an almost military formation. Great photo of Crested pigeon flying away. Ken.

    The yellow tufted honeyeater was quite a picture, but it was the full set of bud, blossom and nut of the yellow gum which I particularly enjoyed a close up of-Costermans (my old copy) is in black and white of course or sketches-nothing like the real thing. cheers, Elizabeth Walsh (FoNW)
