This little Pardalote was busy building it’s nest or making home improvements maybe for a larger family, I’m not sure but it was wonderful to watch.
Last year I walked around Bundaberg Botanical Gardens and photographed various birds, turtles and lizards, including the Great Egret that inspired this painting.
Bundaberg’s Alexandra Park Zoo has a small collection local animals and the best part is it’s free to wander around.
Well these three finches were certainly spread over Australia and photographed over a span of 4years of traveling and camping holidays.
The bower bird builds its nest out of twigs and collects anything it can find that has shades of blue.
The red backed wren was photographed at Australia Zoo last year when I was walking around Bindi Island.
Corella dam was full of wildlife and I must have photographed around 20 different types of birds in that two weeks I camped there.
This little bird I found flying around my campsite and hopping from post to post catching little bugs. I’ve now painted a Red Robin from the UK and this time on the other side of the world the Australian Yellow Robin.
