Oh poor birdies! ;))
Such expressive looks they are giving you. Did you not WARM THAT BATH??? Great shots Carole. I am gradually feeling better by the way... Not the same process as at 40, but progress nevertheless. Best to you from Texas
you made me laugh. :)
Such handsome birds, rather unusual greys, black and of course the yellow. Are these members of the mynah family or named "miner" for another reason?About the gull - it was doing its very loud territorial calling to warn other gulls off - it was with a female! And it possibly thought I had food in my car with the window down and would warn other gulls off for that too.
Fun shots, Carole! There's been ice on our bird water tray for several mornings. It's still only 36 degrees this morning.
Beautiful photos of the Noisy Miner.Perfect photographed, the bath they find do not like, it looks.Greetings Irma
What original birds !Greetings
What an awesome cute birds Carole :-) Cute and sassy lol .... I love them!
Oh my goodness, the expression on the face of the one on the right, in the last photo. Just priceless!
Superb shots of the Miner Birds.
LOL! Birds always look so funny after a bath!
I giggled all through this post. Interesting and pretty birds, though a little goofy-looking when wet. :)
Lovely birds to see... x
Oh my, they are so cute! Great shots! Have a happy weekend!
Looks like the birds are holding their own...so that must mean you are the one to feel sorry for....LOL!Jan
Beautiful blog :)Noisy miners are lovely birds. Their chirping is sweet.Indian myna looks similar but they have dark feathers among other distinguishing features. Lovely blog !
Fun photos Carole. They seem to have lots of personality.
thanks to everyone for your comments; I enjoy reading every one. To answer to you Phil, asking: "Are these members of the mynah family or named "miner" for another reason?"According to Birds in Backyards factsheet [People often confuse miners with the introduced Common Myna. The Common Myna is quite different in plumage (mostly dark brown) and,although it has similar facial markings, belongs to the starling family, while the miners are honeyeaters." Thanks for asking :)
So cool! Wonderful photos. Like your header too.
Great shots of the bird.
Thanks Carole. Having seen Mynahs in SE Asia (India and think Malaysia) I wondered if there was any connection. I'm still intrigued by the "miner", perhaps they "mine" for their preferred foods. We don't have Mynahs or Miners in the UK so forgive me for asking seemingly daft questions.
Gorgeous shots! I love how they look like on the third shot ... a little bit messed-up :)!
These photos crack me up. The expressions are just so funny.
Phil: it seems that because of their similarities in looks, early European settlers derived that different spelling name i.e. Miners/Mynas
Well, now you know, you need to have the water thermostatically controlled and perhaps little sprays of warm air to dry their feathers when they have completed their toilette.
