I'm a pretty avid photographer and I'm lucky to live in an unspoilt rural area that has a lot of wild birds. Hope you enjoy these photos of birds that were taken all around 50 metre from my front door.

 

 

First up are some Rainbow Lorikeets

Ok these aren't feathered friends, more like furry friends. Some Eastern Grey kangaroos on our front lawn.

A fully grown male, they get quite muscly when they are this big and they are pretty aggressive between themselves.

Thanks Mandy, it must be dry out west from me because that's the only time we see Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Corella Cockatoos and presently there's huge flock of them around us.

 

I live in dairy farming country and it's as green as the photos I've seen of Ireland. We have had some substantial rain since well before Christmas and it's been pretty continuous.
