Ozzie memories 3 - Odds n Ends: Parrots and Raptors (Summer 2008)

Australian King Parrot Alisterus scapularis
Australian Ringneck Barnardius zonarius
Gang-gang Cockatoo Callocephalon fimbriatum
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo Cacatua galerita
Black Kite Milvus migrans
Black-shouldered Kite Elanus axillarus
White-bellied Sea Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster (purloining meat earmarked for crocs)
White-bellied Sea Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster
  After the amazing day in Hawkesbury, I had camera issues with 'The Beast', so my next few months of Ozzie travelling saw me desperately trying to snap off shots with a small digital camera, with varying degrees of success!  Thankfully it seemed like a lot of Australian birds are pretty confiding.  The raptor action took place up in Kakadu, and the parrots were from all over.
  April 22:  Me.  Gageo Island.  One month.  Awesome.
