The Lens-Artists Challenge #173: Interesting Architecture

I have been thinking about this theme since I first read it way too early in the morning to have many cohesive thoughts. Here is a random mish mash of constructions with interesting architecture.

I’ve opted for a slideshow for a change. Enjoy your travels and hope that there are interesting architectural surprises along the way

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.

An Intermediate Egret is wondering what all the fuss is about

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
