Australian Birds Photography

Stock Stock Images By Howard Birnstihl


Blue wrens twitter from bush to bush; statuesque night herons defy you to see them move; crimson rosellas and king parrots keep a watchful eye on you as they nuzzle open the seed they hold in a sculptural vice-like claw. Roosters crow and flash spiky combs; pelicans soar, as do eagles. Hawks hover. Gulls aggressively flock, ducks and geese promenade and take their families for walks. Penguins burrow and galahs roost. Owls watch and wait. All have feathers, and lay eggs. Some are pets.
