Corrella

I was not able to get close enough to get a good look at these guys, but I am pretty sure that they are corella, which are very similar to sulfur crested cockatoo, just a bit smaller and all white. Ultimately they are another species of parrot that we have here. While not rare or endangered, this is the first time I have seen them here at our place.

Eastern Osprey

During the middle of the day, its usually quiet here. Most critters are taking it easy and having a rest. NEK MINIT, there was a huge commotion. Every bird in existence started going off its tits and losing its shit, taking off and flying about, or away if they are fast enough. Why? An eagle was doing loops on the thermals above our place. Its funny, these tiny birds call Pee Wee’s all fly straight towards the eagle and start to harass it. An eagle can have a wing span of 2m and a pee wee about 30cm for a size context, but the gutsy little birds take on Goliath HAHAHA. The eagle in the picture above is only a juvenile, maybe half grown. Hard to get a good photo of it with only a 200mm lens, but its the best I could do.
