Orange Chat

At the Desert Park in Alice Springs N.T. were several large, walk-in aviaries.  These Orange Chats were fabulous to see.  Sure, I'd love to have see them out in the wild, but I didn't.

I went back again on our tour 'free day' to see them again.  In the early morning sunshine, preening...

Hello Carole, your Orange Chat is a beautiful bird. We have a Yellow-breasted Chat seen here in the states. Lovely photos! Have a happy day and week ahead!

An intersting species there Carole, one I've never heard of until now. I'm guessing it's loosely related to the wheatear family of chats.

Lovely captures of the Orange Chat. Another bird I have never seen. Lucky you to have seen it even if it was at the Dessert Park.
Best Regards.

You did not see these beautiful yellow colored birds in the wild, but in a park. It also does not matter because they are beautiful to look at. Thank you for this beautiful bird photos :-)
