White feathers

Bird Weekly Photo Challenge – Birds With White feathers

“What do you mean it’s all about white feathers!!! What are these!!! Well I’m staying”

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo taking a stroll

Channel-billed Cuckoos. A migrant from Papua New Guinea who arrives with a raucous voice. They kick out other birds eggs from the nest, lay their eggs and leave the other bird to host the chicks. To see a smaller bird feeding a much bigger bird is distressing as that little bird will wear out from trying to keep enough feed going. They try for Ravens and Magpie nests usually.

I love seeing Sacred Ibis wheeling about on the current especially a huge flock….magnificent

Fly….it’s much nicer to have a stroll on the beach.

“Quick everyone….get out of here. There’s an Osprey walking along the beach coming this way”

I had to put in a Pelican didn’t I?

Royal Spoonbills always look serious to me

HI….great to see you

And a bonus Pelican

  1. I love these so much! Great commentary with some of your humor! The Cuckoo is not the only bird that lays its eggs in other species nests but to throw out the other eggs…that’s barbaric! Thank you for including the Pelican. Never too many of those. Wonderful gallery! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Marsha. The little bloke with his mouth open is a pee Wee or Magpie Lark. A lot smaller than a Magpie and more noisy not as melodious as a Magpie ๐Ÿ™‚ Bird bums is a bit of a favourite photo to get, they are so fluffy ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. You can tell that Pee Wee had a lot to talk about. The other one I like so much looks like he is getting ready to dive. ๐Ÿ™‚ You do an amazing job, Brian. ๐Ÿ™‚
