Whilst out at the Hunter Wetlands we were walking along a track at the very back of the location when we came upon this guy. He was friendly enough to sit for a photo.
Eastern Yellow Robin
The Sacred Kingfisher
I captured this photograph in an area of bushland that had recently been burnt out. I love the contract between the bird and the surrounding burnt ground and fallen leaves.
Male Superb Fairy-Wren
This is a male Superb Fairy-Wern sitting on some wire calling. I was very lucky to get up and close to this guy to capture this photograph.
The Powerful Owl
The Common Ostrich
This photo was taken at Dubbo Zoo. He was kind enough to kep still for a few seconds to allow me to get this wonderful photograph.
This bird was photographed at Green Point, on Lake Macquarie. It has a wonderful complex warble song.
These two Brown Songlarks were photographed at Hexam swamp one morning after sunrise.
I found this little bird out at Green Point reserve on Lake Macquarie, Australia. They may be small and drab in colour, but they have a wonderful voice.
White Breasted Woodswallows
These two birds were photographed at Hexam swamp whilst they were surveying the land looking for prey.
White Headed Stilt
This is a white headed stilt. They are most notable by their voice which sounds exactly like a puppy yapping. This photo was taken at Teralba near Lake Macquarie.
The Fan Tailed Cuckoo
This is a wonderful looking bird. Obviously the most striking feature is the yellow eye ring, but also look at the markings on its tail. This photo was taken on the grounds of the Newcastle University.
Fan Tailed Cuckoo
This Fan Tailed Cuckoo was photographed on the grounds of the Newcastle University. Such a wonderful looking bird with the most distinct yellow eye ring.
This photo was taken in the Upper Allyn River in the Hunter Valley. He was giving me the evil eye seeing if I had any food.
The Australian Brush Turkey
This Brush Turkey was sighted near the Allyn River in the Upper Hunter Valley. He was fairly friendly, hoping to get a feed.
Looks like a magpie or a crow but with big golden piercing eyes.
White Necked Heron
This is an interesting bird that stands about one meter or so tall. This was a adult with breading plumamge on display. This bird was photographed on Ash Island at Hexam.
Blackfaced Cuckoo Shrike
Olive Backed Oriole

This flock of Red Necked Avocents are jumping in flight in respose to a crow landing near by.
White Faced Heron
This is a very common bird in the local Newcastle area. This photo was taken at stockton. The blowing wind has given him a nice hair style.
Red Necked Avocet
These birds were photographed at Stockton. There were several hundred present, way to many for me to actually count. There appear to be easily frightened and will jump as a flock if spooked.
