Here's a few more birdies I managed to capture this morning ...

A Lewin's Honeyeater

A Butcherbird. These guys are similar to our Magpies and, like Magpies, attack humans during baby season ... which is just ending now. I was shooting the Honeyeater when I heard this 'warning' (Butcherbirds give you warning as they attack) and seeing as I ignored him completely and carried on taking my photo, he swooped me so close I could feel the air whiz by me!

These next two I can't identify yet. They may be juveniles of some sort.

Awsome bird shots MA! The last one looks like one of your robins although I wouldn't have the faintest idea!
#2 reminds me of our Eastern Kingbirds...especially how you descrive them. They are a bunch of bullies here too!
You have such a great variety of different birds although I'm sure you say that about us in North America! :)
Did you use yor external flashwith these? If so...I gotta figure mine out ASAP!

Great photos M.A.! Birds are cool creatures but I am prejudiced. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y29/Sparkle2/Smilies/i_ooki1.gif

Great shots MA. All these birds look so good, hard to choose just one, so I'll say I like them all !
