DON'T LET THE RAIN STOP YOU.

A few more birds from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary visit.

Rainbow Lorikeet

Pelican

Moor Hen

Magpie Goose

Owl

Wedge Tailed Eagle

A ring in...the Macaw isn't Australian
 At this point in the show the rain came down but the bird handler kept on with the show.

The tourists kept on with the tour.

  8. It's one of those places that once you have paid to enter you really want to take in as much as you can. I have fond memories of our last visit there 11 years ago - and hope to return in the next year or two.

  9. Didn't you say once that you don't like to photograph birds because you don't do a good job ... You are definitely NOT allowed to say that any longer ... these are wonderful pictures. Rain or shine.

  10. I love the owl photo ;) Its eyes are such a suppository of wisdom. The lorikeet is good too.

  11. I'm glad the photographer kept on with the tour when the rains came. The Lorikeet is the most colorful bird I've seen.

  12. More great pictures... That was great that the tour guide kept on with the tour despite the rain... Love it!!! I love the Eagle --since it looks so different from ours. Love that owl also!!!! Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs,

  13. Well I can see them all.
    Great photos - the Asian tourist brigade look disappointed with the weather and such a shame.
    Were there not other parrot varieties besides those noisy lorikeets??
    The crimson rosellas, the eastern parrots etc etc. I would be surprised if they weren't somewhere
    on show.
    Pity it can't rain where it is needed - like all over Australia and now, before summer comes.
    Well done, Diane on showcasing the wonderful bird life of Australia.
    Cheers

  20. No on the macaw but the cockatoo she is holding is! All of your bird photos are amazing and I'm a parrot lover (owner) so that would be heaven for me!

  23. Hi Diane, I came back to look at all these amazing birds. I loved all of them but that wedge tailed eagle really caught my eye. He is impressive. I have always enjoyed these bird shows. I don't get the chance to see them very often. Thanks for sharing.
