I think of all the birds that come into my garden to eat off my feeders as my birds so come rain or snow I am out filling them up.
This beautiful little Goldfinch visits my niger feeder (had to get a metal one as the plastic Squirrel proof one is not Squirrel proof). I have seen 5 in the tree all at one time so I know I have at least 5 in the area.
The rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia (Maluku and Western New Guinea), Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. In Australia, it is common along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and Tasmania. Its habitat is rainforest, coastal bush and woodland areas. Several taxa traditionally listed as subspecies of the rainbow lorikeet are increasingly treated as separate species

I stopped by the rookery at Dover Park, in Fairfield last week to see if anything was going on, boy was it! The kids were out running around, chasing & fighting with each other on top of the trees and making the parents life a living hell as they demanded food! It was so active and noisy like a 'birding warfare' was happening...great entertainment ...I'm sure it won't last much longer.
The bird is a Starling. The title is a variation of the quote "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" from the battle of Bunker Hill. Being the July 4th weekend, I thought the title was apropos. via 500px ift.tt/1mrvXgk
I've been attempting to lure my birds to a specific feeder near a clean window with no screen. This, however, is not that window. They perch on the edge of the deck and watch me from a safe distance, still unsure if I (and my four-legged beasts) are trustworthy.
Best to be viewed in large size format.
PLEASE don't invite me to over-regulated and restricted groups.

The Pacific Swallow (Hirundo tahitica) is a small passerine bird in the swallow family. It breeds in tropical southern Asia and the islands of the south Pacific. It is resident apart from some local seasonal movements. This bird is associated with coasts, but is increasingly spreading to forested uplands.

Turbo edit as I'm shooting up to the North East. Didn't dare go for the sunrise but did head to Fairburn and finally got a shot of this beautiful male brambling what a gorgeous bird! Taken a few visits to finally get it!
I know some of you have seen this bird from me, but it is a different pose and a different shot and I just think this guy is worth seeing again.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
Rainbow lorikeets often travel together in pairs and occasionally respond to calls to fly as a flock, then disperse again into pairs. Rainbow lorikeet pairs defend their feeding and nesting areas aggressively against other rainbow lorikeets and other bird species. They chase off not only smaller birds such as the noisy miner, but also larger and more powerful birds such as the Australian magpie.
