BIRDS IN MELBOURNE

We are lucky in Melbourne to have many birds around that nest in the pockets of bushland and abundant parklands within the metropolitan area. Stretches of water also attract water birds. Here are some birds that are commonly seen in Melbourne. I think I have identified them correctly, but feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

This post is part of the Nature Footsteps Winged meme,
and also part of the Skywatch Friday meme.

  6. I too love our variety birds! Adore your macro of the crested pigeon! I always get the crested and top knot pigeon muddled and have to check before I post!
