  1. The bird on the right perhaps the Barbet is so full of color…another stunning photo Tabib. Love the Sky watch from your garden below also.Thanks so much for your comment on my blog..I really appreciate it. cheers.

  2. The Myna looks a little intimidated. It always amazes me how a Magpie can shoo away a Wedgetail Eagle or the Wattlebird divebomb my aged cat.
