#Bird Weekly Photo Challenge #39 Mostly Australian Birds that Eat Mostly Fish

You can’t be friends with Lisa Coleman and not be all about birds. So here is my first contribution to the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge.

You can join too if you’ve ever taken a picture of a bird that swims and eats fish rather than bread crumbs as the majority of its diet. Here are my choices for this week.

Isn’t he a beauty? I’m assuming he’s a pelican, but don’t quote me.

This might have been a preview for the Australian version of Birds. Sea gulls by the hundreds suddenly swarmed St. Kilda beach goers.

This little cutie walked on water at the Healesville Sanctuary.

This benchmark bird picture is just for Lisa to show you my best eagle photo as of 3-13-2021. This pirate never came down from his perch to dip into the water for a bite to eat.

For more great bird photos watch for Lisa’s Bird Roundup each week. Roundup Week #38. I’m making it my reading list for this week.

    • Hi Donna, Thanks so much. Is he a gorgeous bird? I will definitely check out Terri’s post today. I try not to miss Sunday Stills even if I run a little late in my responses. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Marsha, glad you have some bird photos to share in bird weekly! Your pelican is perfect and well-captured! Lisa’s challenge is doing just that, and I need to get out more and see some birds. As you will read, we may be getting into the house in two weeks, and once there, I have my bird feeders at the ready. Now if I could just get the eagles to nest nearby!

      • It will be a relief, Marsha! Then the fun begins! Weirdly, as if we didn’t have enough on our plate, we’re considering buying the lot next door and building a smaller home to rent out. If we did this, we would take our sweet time for sure!

        • You can control who your neighbors are, for sure. But it could come back to bite. We owned the property next to us and once we lived there a few months, we enjoyed the privacy too much to sell it or build and rent it. As it turned out, a friend offered to buy it, and we agreed and then sold ours within the next couple of months. So, if nothing else, it buys you privacy, if you like that sort of thing.

          • We bought ours before we bought the house. We were going to build on it , and then the scruffy house next door – a repo was on the market. Vince thought the new buyers might put a business there next to our lovely new home. So we bought it, remodeled it to sell and moved in. End of story. the beautiful house he designed never happened.

  2. As Lisa said an Australian Pelican. The Duck is a Pacific Black Duck and the eagle is just a silhouette but being on the beach either a White-bellied Sea eagle or and Osprey. Hope that helps Marsha
