Bird Spotting

The flora and fauna of Australia is vastly different from the United States.  I regret that I have not seen a kangaroo or koala in the "bush".   I have, however, seen many birds that are common to Sydney but NOT to Michigan.

1 Magpie  2 Rainbow Lorikeet  3 Miner  4 Dusky Moorhen
1 Australian White Ibis  2 Myna(?)  3Little Black Cormorant  Sulfur Crested Cockatoo 
While bats are mammals and not birds, I couldn't help but include this photo of Flying Fox bats.  These were roosting in the Botanic Garden.  The Flying Fox bats have become a nuisance and caused the demise of several irreplaceable trees in the Garden.
Do you think it looks like a fox?

Have a great weekend.  
See you on Monday.

  1. wow that last one does look like a fox - and cute too, even if a little destructive.

    We get loads of magpies here. In fact where I live now we have a very large population of it seems!


Thanks for your comments. I love to hear from readers of Spiral Style
