An avian assortment.

Ah, a little free time for me having just completed the draft of my Master of Marine Resources Management Thesis! Typically I like to spend my “discretionary” time outside, often as a birdwatcher; however, it is mid-summer and we are deep in drought so not a lot going on other than “resident” species. Therefore, I have selected an assortment of the bird species I have photographed to share with you. The images were shot either in Australia, Belize, or the USA.

Enjoy!
