The Gums...
We have tourists at the moment and one of them is a keen photographer... so just before sunset we took them for a drive to what we call ''the Gums'' which is and area of Gum Trees that always has plenty of birds nesting especially the pink and grey Galah...
 there were several ''cockies'' about and they were keeping a keen eye on us... we found a few hollowed out dead branches with evidence of a nest being built in and some could of had eggs in... if there were any babies they were being very quiet...

the surprise was this Eagles nest... I have never seen one before... 
there were plenty of photo's taken of this
today they are going to take a ladder down there so the photographer can get some shots of in the nest... we don't think that there is any activity from eagles using it but we did notice a Galah being very protective of the nest area.... which would be so funny if they were using it...

  6. Beautiful photos! I love our bush, the smells and the different colours you see in one gum tree. Amazing finding the eagles nest. Hope they don't decide to have a tryst while you have the ladder up the tree.
