Who's a pretty boy and boy and girl, then?

Been a good year for Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) sightings near Orient Station. Two males and female (left) brighten a rusty stretch of barbed wire.

A few more Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) sightings than common in Tyto lately. No way of telling whether they're boys or girls, but they're pretty, right?

Pretty special, too, male Crimson Finch (Neochmia phaeton) in Tyto.

But few can open their mouths and compete with male Shining Flycatcher (Myiagra alecto), a favourite near old stockyards at Mungalla Station. Pretty spectacular!

Stunning images Tony. The budgies are brilliant.
