Rainbow Bee-eater big on dragonflies

Parent Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus) lands with dragonfly for junior perched above Palm Creek at Mungalla Station today. Just one of many such feeds judging by junior's size.


And another, tighter, shot of Budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus)  from the other day near Orient Station.

It's interesting that the young birds are much more golden in colour than their parents.

Last straw too much for Double-barred Finch

Townsville Common Cons. Pk, track to Jacana hide, today. Flew off a second later with lighter load.
