Fwd: update pallid cuckoos

I would like to suggest what is probably happening. Firstly it would be very strange and hard to imagine how it can ever happen that two juvenile Pallid Cuckoos are being fed by the same individual foster parents. The cuckoo chicks could be siblings (same actual parents – or not) but raised in . . . → Read More: Fwd: update pallid cuckoos

Cockatiel in Como

Hi all

Looked out my window at 6.15 this morning (Como on the Woronora River, Southern Sydney, 33,59,59S, 151,03,54E) and saw what I’m fairly sure was a cockatiel going past.

is there a verb for this?

More recently she has become interested in taking bird photos but only has a 300mm telescopic lens which is somewhat limiting. Can someone please recommend a telescopic lens which would be more suitable for . . . → Read More: RFI re Recommended Telescopic Lens for a Camera
