Caloundra Birds - September 29, 2011

Blue Faced Honey-Eater at Caloundra.  They had babies within this large palm leaf and I watched them coming and going feeding the babies.

Very poor photo of the Osprey Pair at Caloundra. Early Morning.  A nearby taxi Driver told me that I was about half an hour too late to get a great action photo.  Apparently the birds come back regularly at about 5am with a large fish and it is a spectacular sight he told me.



Female Figbird?
