Great set Norm. Wonderful diversity you have there.

We've had a number of fatal window collisions too - a number of rosellas and, memorably, a young Collared Sparrowhawk. It seems to be mostly the youngsters. I wonder too about the ones that hit hard and fly away - some might succumb later.

Male Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) in breeding plumage. Taken through a window, while he took a moment out from attacking his reflection. KP + DA 55-300 PLM.



These gorgeous fairy-wrens are feisty little characters. They are also famous for their infidelity: The promiscuous life of the Superb Fairy-wren. Whether this is a reason why they are regularly voted amongst Australia's favourite birds is open to debate.

Kids are often a pain in the ear ... whether or not they have wings.

I probably posted this at the time, but it popped up on the BBC Springwatch programme last night (via the eponymous Flickr group). Fortunately they ask permission, so I was alerted to ii (though I do often watch, as it happens). Male sparrowhawk.
