    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 30/5/10 "BLACK, BLACKER, BLACKEST"

    A great collection of Bush Birds last week, made me want to get out there in the forest!!
    This week its all about BLACK!!! Any bird with BLACK in its common name or with a large amount of black on it is up for inclusion. Good luck

    Common Blackbird (Turdus merula)

    Australian Magpie (Cracticus tibicen)
    It was doing this for a few minutes, eating insects and continuously looking at me, like I was going to steal them from him
