More Australian Birds

Here is another Gallery of my photos of birds from Oz. There are a couple I have included even though the photo is not great: one, the Southern Emu-Wren was rather difficult to photograph, hiding among trees and jumping around quickly, but I was struck by its amazing tail, which seems to consist of just filaments. The other is the White-throated Needletail, we were surrounded by a large number of them, they are a type of swift, and fly very fast, as they swooped past our heads, we could hear the swoosh of the air off their wings . They are actually the fastest flying birds known (that is in flapping flight) and have been confirmed to fly at more than 110 km/h. Which makes capturing a good photo tricky
