I've really enjoyed reading Josh's bird watching thread and seeing all the different birds you guys have over there so I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the birds I get in my area. I only have the one pic so far but as I manage to get shots I'll add more.

This is a baby Noisy Minor that was in my rock garden this morning so I moved it to my gardenia to give it some protection from the rain. These birds really do live up to their name especially when you're near their babies! The adult birds were chirping like mad and swooping me whilst I moved the baby. This is the second baby we've had in the backyard in the last few months. They seem to venture out of the nest before they're able to fly back to it, this baby's nest is very high up in a tree.

Thanks Chopper, the babies tend to stay still so I was able to get very close and use the macro setting on the camera. No picture of the parents yet as they keep landing too far away.

Unfortunately baby didn't make it Sad
Found it dead on my paving at lunch time. Don't know what happened, it was fine this morning and it didn't look like it had been attacked.

It's been a bad week for the Noisy Minors, we found another dead baby on our grass on Sunday. Sad We think it fell out of the tree, but the good news is there's still another baby around.

The parents were also cooperating on the weekend and since it wasn't raining for a change I managed to get a few pics of the adult Noisy Minor up in the tree, so here's the best one.

Sorry about the loss of chicks. Birds are quite good at concealing illness and injury. Perhaps the first chick was hurt by the fall from the nest and just "looked" fine. They are very beautiful birds but I think I would rather see them than hear them.Wink

They're not too bad, the chicks can get annoying because they don't shut up but for me it brings back childhood memories of being at my grandmother's place.

Besides, in terms of noise, the cockatoos and kookaburras are far worse! Thankfully, no kookaburras around here as they can be a real nuisance with their pre-dawn chorus of laughter, they always wake me up when I'm at my sister's place.

Finally got a picture of one of the Rainbow Lorikeets that visit my grevillea out the front all the time. It's not a great pic as I took it on my phone and they flew away before I could get many shots but here it is!

Well it certainly is not something I have ever seen.
Thanks so much for sharing those great pictures.
So nice to see birds from other parts of the world.
We only have crows here right now, that seem to be ORGANIZING something in my neighbourhood.... affraid

Lol GWN! Hope it's not too serious!

Technically this is my neighbour's front yard but we get them in our yard too!

This one is a magpie, they are highly territorial birds when it's nesting season and will swoop unsuspecting passers by (pulling out hair). We've never had a problem with them though, I think because they know us as they grew up in our trees, other people might be different.
