The e birds

Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds beginning with the letter “E”

I didn’t really know what I could find but an egret or eagle or two but lets press on and see what E birds may be found around here.

Well I found an Egret that doesn’t mind riding cattle, Eagles with food, thanks goodness that I have a few photos of Eastern birds and a dove. Head on out with a bit of Aussie rock from the 70’s plus a slice of what Australia was like at that time

  1. Wow. You went above and beyond. Those cattle egrets actually feed on the insects on the cattle’s backs. You probably know that but how I love to state the obvious. Wonderful and profuse photos, Bushboy.

  2. Love the eagle photos. I’m assuming that wedged-tail eagle found some roadkill. I’d be a bit alarmed if it was the one that took it out. Cattle egrets never get old for me. They’re funny birds and perched on cattle just adds another layer to it.

      1. Was quite a special one. I parked my car when I was the Wedgie up ahead and took photos from the car. When I moved too much, he flew off. a good couple of minutes watching πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Sue. Yes the White-bellied Sea Eagle has a fish being closely followed by one of the three Silver Gulls who pestered the eagle hoping it would drop the fish. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. Well, I’d say you got more than Egrets and Eagles and Easterns there. Is that a dead kangaroo with the Eagle? I guess that is like finding dead white-tailed deer here. I would love to see that Eastern Curlew, well all your birds really! Maybe a house swap could happen someday. LOL! You could come see Florida birds and I’ll go see your birds! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Lisa. Yes the Wedgie is ripping apart a Red-necked Wallaby road kill. I have never thought of house swapping but I would never be at the house, I would be travelling πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
