Birds around Bourke NSW

In our recent trip to western NSW we visited the beautiful city of Bourke on the Darling River. These are some of the species we found there.  Red-rumped parrot, Common Starling, Emu chicks, Whistling Kite, White-necked heron, Pelican, Darter, Emu and chicks.

Fantastic set Alcatraz, like Dev those emu and RR parrots shots are brilliant.

Really also like that front Pelican shot as well, the way its captured the colours/markings under the bill 

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

Thanks Devo. The Emu chicks are beyond cute. They and mum are usually pretty flighty tho. RR parrots had their nest in a tree above our free camp on the Darling River. So, we were neighbours! Cheers.

Thanks Devster, Laza,  Elizabeth and WD for your kind comments. Next comes the pinnacle of our recent trip - Bowra. Cheers

That mum might be a dad. It's dad who rares the chicks.

Thanks Woko! I must admit my knowledge of the emu is quite limited. Looked big enough to be a blokemu. Cheers

Thanks Ryu. Dead right. They are very impressive and the chicks are simply beautiful. They live in such harsh conditions. Cheers
