Birds on the block
Posted By: Westoz, 03-13-2014, 06:35 AM

About four years ago I moved a hour and a half from the suburbs of Perth to Dawsville at what my friends call the edge of civilization.
I have a nice little half acre block of land which previous owners have planted trees and flowering shrubs to attract the native wildlife and we have continued the process.
We also keep water on hand in the form of a man made stream nothing to flash and self filling bird baths, needless to say we get a lot of birds through and some that live and nest hear every year.
Over the last four years we have had 37 bird species come through unfortunately you don't always have a camera on hand so I will just post a few of each that I did catch. Hope you enjoy.

1-2 . Pink and Grey Galah

3-4 . Western Corella

5-6-7 . Honeyeaters

8-9-10 . Redcaps

Thanks Bob. My wife keeps telling people since we move down hear I never leave the property except to take the Dogs to the beach.

A true color and pose extravaganza. Especially like the banking Corella!
Thank you one of the hardest to catch in flight as it's never in a straight line.

Thanks Norm, In a way we do the dogs keep the cats out of the yard and we don't let the dogs harass the birds.
