This bird is actually wild! It is a honey eater, again there are many varieties of this bird... We saw it land on the bush while we were up in Kuranda (I have a nice shot of that flower that I will share later too - today it is all about the animals) with that said, I have no idea what kind of bird it is or what kind of bush that is either... (I know SAD, but this is a quilting blog.)
This is hte head of a Cassowary. It is native to the Rainforests. It is a HUGE bird (And apparently kills humans).
The photo does not do it justice, but the skin on its nect was BEAUTIFUL!
Fairy Penguins. Hundreds if not thousands of people gather on the beaches to watch the "penguin parade" as these guys return each night from the ocean to their nests. (The was an optional tour to Phillip Island to watch the "parade" Michael & I passed. (I heard it was FREEZING cold...)
Just another pretty bird in what looks like a natural setting.
