This site is about wild bird and in particular about birds in the urban environment. It includes a short photographic compilation of wild Australian native and introduced birds, like the beautifully coloured Eastern Rosellas (Platycercus eximius), Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), the small Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae), and many others.

The photos are of birds within a few kilometres radius of my home, in Carrum Downs (Lat. 38° 06° South and Long. 145° 11° East), a suburb of the city of Frankston, south east of Melbourne (Victoria, Australia). 

Many of the photos have been taken from and through the windows of my two storey home; a good number of photos are from my own front and back garden; others are the results of brief excursions within a few streets or few a kilometres from my house.

All the foto have been taken by me with a variety of cameras. A few of the very old photos have been taken with a Canon EOS 10, and a Nikon F-601 but most of the photos in this site have been taken with digital cameras like the Nikon Coolpix 950, the Sony Cyber-shot, a Canon IXUS and the more sophisticated Nikon DX70, DX80 and lately with the fantastic Nikon DX7000.

I have made use of a large combination of different lenses and settings. For the more technical minded the exif information provides useful information. Although I have added exif data on copyright and location on older non-digital photos no details on the camera have been added. Hence, where such info is missing a non digital, classic camera was used.
