Allan these Kookaburras are beautiful. Is the top one a juvenile? Looks different.
No, it was one of a pair that I imaged. In the first image, the Kookaburra was in deep shade due to harsh lighting and so the difference was due to the processing. The other two of the trio are basically SOOC the sun went behind clouds and thus easy exposures.
As they say, it's all about the light

a few from last couple of days.
There have been a lot of birds lately that are hanging around. Some with their delightful songs.
The male Superb Fairy Wrens are losing their grandiose blue plumage

Kevin these (Cormorants, Pelicans) are very nice and interesting.
I observed them, when on the coast on a recent holiday, and noticed the interaction between them, even down to their poses.
They'd often be in sync with others as you showed.

Yes Richard isn't nature amazing? I've often wondered as to the reaction speed of a flock when they all move in unison in flight. Apparently latest research proposes that the whole flock move in unison when initiated by just one bird. The time difference from the initiation to the rest moving is as fast as 67millisecond!!!!

Since arriving home from holidays, a pair of smallish raptors has been hanging around in nearby gumtrees, and also zooming in near my house - despite their closeness, I've found it difficult to photograph them to identify them, but I'm pretty sure now they are collared sparrowhawks, probably juveniles. They are almost constantly noisy with squeaks and squeals, making no attempt to be stealthy.

You're correct melanie. That's a juvenile collared.

The San Juans got hit pretty hard with heavy wind and rain last night - luckily by this morning the storm had passed and the sunshine finally peaked through the clouds allowing for some good birding weather here. Here are a few shots below taken with the EM1 and 300mm Pro.
