Video of White-plumed Honeyeater chicks looking for food, being fed by a parent - videos 2,3 & 4

This is the second lot of videos of the White-plumed Honeyeater chicks being fed, from very young when their eyes weren't yet opened, to later when the parent takes away the droppings from the nest.

Hope you enjoy the videos.

We were lucky enough to have a White-plumed Honeyeater nest in our backyard recently. Over a period of time I took videos. This is one of the videos I took showing the parent coming in to feed the chicks.

I hope you enjoy it.

Video of Flock Bronzewings at Connells Lagoon, Barkly Tablelands, Northern Territory

My brother, dad and 4 other people from BirdLife Central Australia recently went to Connells Lagoon Conservation Reserve. There are some special grasses there, and the Flock Bronzewings like the grasses. Late in the afternoon, all of us were sitting at the lagoon with the sun behind us and the lagoon in front of us. I took this video of the birds flying past and then landing on the other side of the lagoon. I hope you like it.

Brown Falcon taking off

My brother, dad and I were up at Connells Lagoon Conservation Reserve. We had seen the falcon from a little bit down the road, and dad had taken some photos. He said to start filming and the falcon might take off as we started moving. He was right.

Australian Magpie gives a lesson to its young on feeding and nest building - video by Moses Waring

These two Australian Magpies were near our caravan site at Victor Harbor late last year (2013). It looked like the older magpie was trying to show the younger magpie how to forage in the dirt for food, and then picks up a stick. I think it was trying to show the younger one how to collect sticks for its nest. What do you think?

Hope you enjoy the video.




Musk Lorikeet feeding on a flowering tree video by Moses Waring



I really love the parrots and lorikeets, they have lovely colours and they can be so funny and they can be noisy too. This Musk Lorikeet was feeding on some flowers in our campground at Victor Harbour in South Australia. I got up early and was looking for birds when this one flew into the tree next to me.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Wild Budgerigars feed in the Tree Hollow


Sand Goanna and the cicada

We were at some friends place to play some tennis.While I was there, I saw this Sand Goanna wander through the bushes and then come under the pool fence with a cicada. I then watched it walk across the back verandah until it finally found a nice place behind a pot plant. Hope you enjoy the movie.
