My Sunday Photo – Tiny Birds

Recently I’ve been making an effort to get out at the crack of dawn capture the sunrise. In many ways it’s easier at the moment, because the sun rises so late (around 7am). In many other ways, it’s extremely difficult. My bed is warm, and I like them warm. Outside is not warm.

While I’m pretty happy with some of the sunrise photos that I have taken, I also realise it’s best to not bore you all with the same subject week after week. So this week My Sunday Photo is focussed some of the wildlife that I recently spotted – some rather cute tiny birds.

Tiny Birds

I’m almost certain that the first bird is a female fair wren. There was a brilliant-blue male hovering around the area, but he was scared off by a garbage truck before I could get my camera out. This tiny female was a bit bolder, and she stuck about for the photo shoot.

I have no idea what these other birds are. They are about the same size as the fairy wren. They look similar too, but definitely not the same. Bonus points to anyone who can identify them for me!

Okay, I said no more boring sunrises, but this last photo was taken well after sunrise, so technically it’s just a landscape photo. I quite like the atmosphere of this shot, especially with the lingering fog around the base of the cliffs. The ocean was pretty angry that morning too, although I’m not sure it really comes across in this photo.

    I especially like the last shot of the three birds, the contrast between light and dark and the flash of colour on the birds themselves. Lovely. #MySundayPhoto

      They do have really interesting colours. Perhaps I should try and find out what they are.

    Lovely photos but….. I’m team sunrise too! Much prefer photos like your last one over wildlife. (Is that controversial) 😛 #mysundayphoto

      It seems you are not the only one. Perhaps I will have another sunrise #MySundayPhoto next week then.

    Tiny birds are beautiful, BUT the atmosphere, feeling and light in the final photo inspires me more than the birds do :O #mysundayphoto

    That is about as far removed from a boring sunrise pic as you can get! Just an amazing capture and taken into the sun. Most impressive. As for Aussie birdlife, I can still hear the birdsong now. it’s like nothing I’ve heard anywhere else on Earth. #mysundayphoto

    Hi James, nicely photoed, little birds and big ones aren’t easy to photograph. That wren looks a right little camera tease and I can’t remember the last time I saw a wren, we don’t seem to get them here. I’m no expert but the shape of the other bird makes me think a type of finch? We get flocks of gold finch here, but I am not familiar with birds in Austrailia. #MySundayPhoto
