Woodland birds from SE Australia

I spent a brief hour in a local National Park after work last Thursday. In amongst the tall trees and dense bush the E-5 was a little outside its comfort zone at ISO800, but there were plenty of small birds fussing and flittering about feeding in the trees. I was kept busy trying to hit the small overhead targets with the ZD300mm.  Here are the few that I caught in reasonable light.

A couple of Varied Sittellas



An Eastern Spinebill



And a female Golden Whistler
She came right up close to pose for me, but stayed in the shadows 
These 3 shots lifted nicely using Lightroom 4.
