Three bird types

Galahs feeding on White Cypress pine-cones

this Olive-backed Oriole was finishing off the final weaving of nest





I had the advantage of standing on an elevation, side of little valley, which made it easier to get a better line of sight with the camera lens

White-winged Triller (a long way out, and photo taken through fencing).  I leave this photo in since these birds are likely to be few and far between for me.

Location: Bingara, N.S.W.

I have never heard of an Olive-backed Oriole. He's very unique. Love that little black and white bird too.

Great photos of 3 very nice birds - the Olive-backed Oriole on the nest is especially good.

What wonderful photos these are Carole! I will never get over the beauty and diversity of the birds in australia!

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Carole I have seen all 3 of these birds however you have managed to get great shots of the Oriole in its nest.

Oooh a White-winged Triller! Nice find! They are few and far between in Brisbane too (seeing them is a sign that things are VERY dry out west). I really like those Oriole shots too - you've captured an important and intimate moment for the bird.

I've never heard of the olive backed oriole, Carol. So different from the Baltimore orioles that we have. They are orange and black.

Beautiful photos. I really like the photos of the bird weaving the nest.

Liz said...

I've seen loads of Galahs, but never an Oriole or a White-winged Triller. You do find some wonderful birds on your walks and travels!

What a great find to be able to watch the nest building!

Superb series, Carole!
