Birds (I)

It was sunny but still chilly and windy today. Really not feeling motivated to work, I hopped on my bike and rode to the South Perth foreshore to see some birds. I wasn't disappointed.

A male Australian shelduck (Tadorna tadornoides)

A female Australian shelduck with her chicks

Daddy, mommy and the kiddos - a pretty sight

A pair of black swans (Cygnus atratus) and their cygnets

1. LEFT: Australian wood ducks (Chenonetta jubata)
(the female has two white stripes above and below the eye)

2. RIGHT: Pied oystercatchers (Haematopus longirostris)

1. LEFT: Galah (Cacatua roseicapilla)

2. RIGHT: Long-billed corella (Cacatua tenuirostris)
