The two of us

The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: More Than One Bird Species In a Photo

I have a good variety of twos or more so lets go with one of my favourite songs as you scroll through the birds. To see the larger image of your choice, click on the photo

Blue-faced Honeyeater and Noisy Friarbird face off in the Honey Gem Grevillea

Pied Oystercatcher, a Little Tern and Crested Terns

Eastern Curlew and Silver Gulls

Silver Gull flying, a Darter in the water and an Australian Pelican on the water

A Red-browed Firetail Finch contemplating the bird bath with a Superb Fairy Wren

A White-throated Honeyeater wondered what the two Yellow-faced Honeyeaters were bickering about at the bird bath

“You go in” “No, you go in” The stand-off at the bird bath between a Yellow-faced Honeyeater and a Lewins Honeyeater

The Yellow-faced Honeyeater wondered why the White-throated Treecreeper looked so stand offish.

Assuming the ownership pose, the Yellow-faced Honeyeater tried to intimidate the Eastern Spinebill at the bird bath

The Silvereyes thought the Eastern Yellow Robin looked funny after his bath all fluffed up and disheveled

Scaly-breasted Lorikeets and Rainbow Lorikeets seem to travel together but there is always a squawking match at the bird bath

But when it’s time to have a few crumbs, a Scaly-breasted Lorikeet and Rainbow Lorikeet settle down

Meanwhile back at the bird bath, a Bar-shouldered Dove hangs out with a couple of White-throated Honeyeaters

A couple of White-throated Honeyeaters stretching right down to get a drink from the bird bath while a Scarlet Honeyeater watches on bemused.

There was lots of splashing when the White-naped Honeyeater and Brown Honeyeater were in the bird bath

A Red-browed Firetail Finch and a Silvereye discuss the day over a few drinks

The Spangled Drongo asked “Is the Little Wattlebird still looking at me?” while trying to avoid the glaring look.

A Noisy Friarbird and a Spangled Drongo had a disagreement over whose post it was to sit on. The full story with many more photos is here

After learning how to do the stink eye from the Little Wattlebird, a Spangled Drongo practised on a Noisy Miner who didn’t really give a toss

The Silver Gull had to choose where to land very carefully as the Australian Pelican was waiting while the Gulls mate was telling the Pelican to shut your mouth buddy

The Pied Cormorant looked nonchalant as a Sooty Oystercatcher strolled on by

The Noisy Friarbird didn’t like the Square-tailed Kite flying near his nest

A Magpie Lark or Pee Wee was giving an Australian Magpie a hard time although not as dangerous as the above action

Another smaller bird, Willie Wagtails also gave the Australian Magpie a hard time as they had young in the nest.

One of our favourite Australian Brush Turkeys, Brendan, photo-bombed the Bar-shouldered Doves photo shoot

I don’t think the Rainbow Lorikeet knew that a Musk Lorikeet was about to give him a good dunking

A Sacred Ibis stood guard while a Royal Spoonbill grabbed a nap

A Sooty Oystercatcher and White-faced Heron enjoyed a day at the beach.

  1. Hm… quite odd, seems my blog had unfollowed yours, without letting me know, of course, so strange! Nice to see your photos around my WP Reader again, Brian, lovely colorful bird photos, as usual! πŸ™‚

  2. What an awesome gallery! I don’t even know where to start! The birdbath photos are incredible and I love all your commentary. “Oh crap” only the other word came out of my mouth when I saw the Pelican beak open. I’m guessing he just choked down a fish but the scene that you created was a wozzer! πŸ™‚

  3. Great variety of examples Brian. So far our bird bath only attaches a pair of robins and a wren. Other birds do use the pond, but never see more than one species at a time.
