I'll preface this by saying I know these aren't good photos, but I thought the subject might be of interest.

Driving towards this farm paddock, at first I thought I saw crows on a dead lamb, then realised the scale was wrong: two adult wedge tail eagles were feeding on a dead ewe, while the flock watched from nearby.

These birds are naturally very suspicious of people, and as soon as we stopped and I got out, they were off.

Farmers sometimes blame them for taking their lambs, but they tend to go for the easy option of the pre-deceased meat department.

At an aviary at a country bakery, I stepped into the cage to meet the birds. This sulfur crested cockatoo was pleasant, as was the sweet galah who landed on my shoulder and settled in for some snuggles...right before it savagely bit my cheek! I suppose I should have paid closer attention to the sign saying the birds may bite. Ouch - I still have the marks on my face almost a week later! I didn't dignify that bird with a photo.

At the same bakery, this apostle bird roamed freely, entertaining us with its social interaction, dust bathing and singing songs to us from close by, before settling on a post to enjoy the sunshine.

Well did the big firmware update to V2 on the Panasonic G9 this morning, and took it out at lunchtime with my Olympus 300mm F4 Pro. Saw my first even Wren. Was a long way away so even with the 300mm on, these are still tiny crops (approx 2-3mp), but pretty pleased with them all the same.

Not had a chance to check out the animal AF yet as this little guy was just too small in the frame for it to be detected.
