Now he is introducing his mate...

I now have two kingfishers out my window, squawking all day long. I think they are nesting nearby and this tree is their favourite perch. So lovely…but so noisy!

This little guy has spent the last week outside my study window, squawking & tapping on my window…think he wants to be friends 🙂



He’s certainly a great diversion from writing my assignments!

Australia’s second biggest bird of prey. Being a sea eagle he is not a true scientific eagle but really a giant kite.

The cassowary is a very large flightless bird, and known to be very bad tempered (with that look in his eye, I wouldn’t want to get in his way!). They are a native of New Guinea and Northern Australia, and is a relative of the ostrich and emu.

I’ve been quiet lately as I have been away on holiday…in the lovely sunshine of Port Douglas, Australia. What bliss to get away from my hometown winter cold & rain! I spent about 5 hours at the Wildlife Sanctuary and made friends with Jack the Koala.
