Waterbirds..



Mallard I'm assuming, even though not showing the recognizable white collar; maybe females?

Pied Oystercatcher

Great Photos!

Love the close up photos you captured so beautifully. One does not get to see birds up close like this very often. Especially like your Australasian Grebe photo! Amazing! Very cool swirls in the water! Thanks for sharing!

Greetings,

Beautiful birds! Have a great weekend.

Those Oyster-Catchers have such looong ... beaks. I guess all the better for fossicking for tasty morsels in the shallows.

Marie said...

Beautiful wood duck...well, they are all beautiful! great photos! Nice variety of types.

Jeanne said...

love the teal and the grebe especially. For some reason the teal reminds me a bit of a loon. I do love loons and used to hear them all of the time when I was a kid and we had a cabin on a minnesota lake. Maybe it is the red eyes. Do you have loons in Australia?

Carole M. said...

,,Jeanne, not that I'm aware of, no loons in Australia

I think is amazing birds that swim... Amazing how the feathers aren't soaked with water. Nature is marvelous and perfect!
