Video of Arafura Fantail pair building a nest

My brother, Dad and I saw these Arafura Fantails at Mamukala Wetlands in Kakadu NP building a nest. We sat and waited for them to come back to their nest for quite some time. This is the best video I took. I hope you like it.

Video of Red-collared Rainbow Lorikeets at Batchelor - beautiful colours, lovely steady video

At the caravan park we are staying at, the manager feeds the Galahs and Little Corellas each morning and afternoon. Sometimes, the Red-collared Rainbow Lorikeets come too. Yesterday afternoon they were flying around but didn't come to feed. This morning though, I waited for nearly two hours. Below is a Youtube video of some of the best videos I have ever taken of birds. I think you will agree after watching, these birds really are stunning. I hope you enjoy the video.

Orange-footed Scrubfowl in Darwin video

I saw this Orange-footed Scrubfowl early this morning when my brother and I were going to the toilet from our caravan. When we came back, dad said he'd seen it too and I followed it with my camera to a nearby garden. I hope you enjoy the video.

Video of Owlet-Nightjar during the day

My brother, dad and I are on a trip to Darwin, Litchfield, Mary River/Kakadu and spent the first night at Lake Woods, near Elliott. After we woke up in the morning, dad packed up our van while my brother and I went bird-watching, he went one way and I went another. I was taking a video of some pelicans when I noticed a Wedge-tailed Eagle. It flew over some trees and I went to follow it. I was in the trees when this thing brushed my shoulder and sat on a branch about 5 steps away from me. It turned out to be a little Owlet-Nightjar, a lifer for me. I hope you enjoy the video.
