The light today was particularly good for photographing - cloudy - so I didn't have to combat the glare of the sun.
I feel particularly blessed to live in a city that is so full of nature and wildlife in the suburbs. You never have to go far to be surrounded by the noise of birds in the trees or a beautiful strip of nature on the beaches or the hills.
Ok so dont panic. There is nothing wrong with this bird...other than the fact that his head appears to be way too heavy for his neck to support. This pelican is doing some bizarre fishing technique, I think he might be scoping the water with one eye as he paddles along, Purely ridiculous look but must be a proven effective method otherwise why repeat the exercise?
I love the reflection of the bill in the water.
I'm not too sure if there are two different types of cormorants in the following photos..one with black feathers, one with brown or if they are the same species but different sexes...no idea. Let me know if you know the names of these birds. Note the feathers are shaped similarly and so are the beaks.
