It's been a few months since I've been out shooting birds, so this week I just have a few odds and ends from various camera/lens combos spanning a couple of months.

Here is a Little Wattlebird.
I caught this one yesterday. I was at a family get-together here in Sydney and had taken my E-5 and 12-60mm for family shots, and luckily I had tossed the little 40-150mm into my bag just in case . . .

A Crested Pigeon from a few months back.
A regular visitor to my garden who doesn't mind posing for the camera

My local flock of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos . On the ground at close range. I was in my backyard sitting behind a retaining wall  for this shot, putting the camera at the same level as the birds

5D3 EF 24-105mm f/4

A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo - Largest of the Australian parrots.

I still don't have a good shot of this bird. Seems that I don't have a camera or (as in this case) the right one for the job when I spot one of these birds.
A tight crop that came out OK after a bit of PP work

And  a White-faced Heron,  taken with the E-5 and ZD300mm .
