This one is my big pal, but he has travelled too much for his own taste, poor fellow! The Skogkatts are quite funny and intelligent, and they always seem to find the most incongruous positions to have a nap…
This is a tough one… I don't know much about Australasian Crows, but by the bird's attitude and apparent size, I believe it is a Little Crow (Corvus bennetti), and not a Torresian Crow (Corvus orru) nor a Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides)…
Hi animaisfotos, I'm bothering you again with identification issues! The Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) is all black and white. You can check it out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Ibis.... This is definitelly a Glossy Ibis.
This must have been a nice sighting :)
I've been watching these magnificent birds of prey for some thirty years now and it's always a pleasure to see them. They are very beautiful. This photo is an excellent one... animaisfotos, I like your photos very much. I would love to draw or paint from some of them :)
I'm sorry to say that this is not an Australian Black-shouldered Kite (Elanus axillaris), but rather a European Black-winged Kite (Elanus caeruleus) which is endemmic to the Iberian Peninsula... They are somewhat rare now but still very present in Portugal and Spain (where its Australian cousin never appears) :)
