    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 4/7/10 "BEAKS WIDE OPEN"

    Loved the strange and unnatural perches last week so thanks for all the contributions. This week its all about wide open beaks and bills. Whether its a bird with beak open in full song or just a bored bird yawning. As always, image quality is not a big problem so post away.

    This is about as wide open as a Red-necked Stint's bill gets!

    Taken at our local man-made wetlands. What advantage could a blue palate afford this species in its evolutionary development ?

    I'm not keen on the BG.

    Just back from a (wet , but that's why it's rainforest!!) weekend at Broadwater State Forest inland from Ighan NQ and this shot fits right into this weeks theme, Pale-yellow Robin (race nana, buff lores and eyering).
