Oriental Cuckoo in flight at Tyto

Want to see bad pictures of an Oriental Cuckoo? No? Well another Tony does, so here we have distant flight at Tyto the other morning. Only the two in-flight images, so lucky to have contrasting wing positions. No Orientals seen last year: 3-4 late-season birds last few weeks.

Sticking with less than perfect, Black-necked Stork with wriggling  eel. Had to stop on Cattle Creek bridge on main (Bruce) highway for quick shots with Troopy's diesel motor pounding but got lucky  break in traffic.

Better shot of Budgerigar along Orient Road recently. Not so lucky with the barbed wire (rusty's better: natural material better yet).
