Lovely to see the landscape well as the birds - something many bird photographers neglect to show us. It's odd really since one of the major considerations when first identifying a species is the habitat in which it's found. You've done a fine job!

Lovely photos, Carole. I used to visit Centennial Park from time to time when I lived in Sydney, and I particularly loved the thick Palm grove that you've captured in the background of your Ibis flock photo. Always reminded me of somewhere in South-east Asia or Africa!

They are all perfectly sharp, very well done, compliments.
Greetings Irma

You always capture such interesting birds. 4 species in one area is a cool find. The White Ibis is an interesting looking bird.
