    Default Birds on the farm

    Hi All,

    This is my first photo post. No PP (just cropped and resized). I'm sure they could do with some - but I'm at the start of the PP learning curve, so would probably do more harm than good at this stage.

    A friend works on a flower farm just out of Sydney (I'll post some flower shots another time). I went to visit him last weekend and managed a few bird shots. Here are some I thought were OK. One of my favourite birds is the little blue wren. The males are blue (females are light brown). They hop around like crazy, and barely stay still for a second unless they have some cover, but still I managed to get quite a few keepers. I only had the 40-150 with me - next time I'll take the 70-300!!

    Very pretty bird as what I can see, the brown wrens here are the same "quick" but do pause to let out a ear piecing chirp . welcome Nick G . cheers Pete

    Wow, I've never seen such a colorful Wren! Not to worry, Nick, the PP skills will come.
