A juvenile Diamond Firetail, a great find as these gorgeous birds are listed as vulnerable in NSW. Landclearing, habitat fragmentation and habitat modification (through the removal of small shrubs, fallen timber and ground litter) are the main culprits. I hope this young fella can live to have a family of its own! .
◇ I'll post a pic of the adult tomorrow! .

Hey, what are you looking? Don't look to me!! I need some privacy for doing some Herring Gull things!!.
This is what this female Herring Gull was probably thinking when it was on it's nest and I was observing her. I love the expression of some birds in some situations that are pretty much the same as humans.
