    Lunch on the Myall. Australian Pelicans (Pelecanus conspicillatus) hang around the rear of the restaurant.

    We went for a boat trip up the Murchison River and Sharon took this pic of a white bellied sea eagle with his fish dinner

    Spotted a White Bellied Sea Eagle cruising high above the Pittwater shallows while walking Billie .
    A little unusual to see ,as we generally have Whistling Kites in this area….
    No pic. as I only had my phone and it would not have done this beautiful raptor justice……
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Narky little buggers. Just cleared away the Galahs and King Parrots. These have to be the most aggressive parrots I have ever come across! Had a couple of rescues in the aviary once. Never again!!!

    If you get a mix without sunflower seeds they will probably stop coming around. Rainbow lorikeets are really nectar eaters but will have a go at sunflowers

    Very true but fortunately this wasn't at my place. However I've managed to attract many of them after planting lots of flowering gums of various sorts.

    I reckon they are actually raptors disguised as lorikeets.
