This silly fellow crashed into the glass windows not once but twice, and seemed mortally wounded. I rescued him and after a while put him where he would be safe from Flair’s inquisitive nose to finish recovering. While all this was happening one of his mates crashed into another window. Is it something in the air? Or do they see the reflected sky and think they can fly right through? Do birds feel pain?
Flocks of Red-browed Finches have been around the house for months now. It has been a very dry spring (until this week) with very little feed, so the longer grass and shelter from shrubs has brought them in closer.

This Kookaburra was obviously used to humans as he stayed around on my daughters’ back fence in suburban Sydney for about 15 minutes, allowing me to change lenses and then get in quite close for this image. This is a blue winged Kookaburra, native to Australia and a large bird with a loud harsh laugh as its call.
No textures today. I’m away from home with a new laptop, and Lightroom and Photoshop CC which I’m trying to fathom out. But it doesn’t come easy and I can’t find my images once I’ve altered and saved them in Photoshop. Any ideas where they’ve gone would be welcome 😦 So this is an image I uploaded a while ago. An Australian native, some variety of Grevillea.
