Great Birding Moments #10 Noisy Miner
Last week I went for a stroll through the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. I was pleased to get several good photos of a Silver Gull, a Dusky Moorhen and some Pacific Black Ducks on the lake near the restaurant area. I then walked around the lake where I could see some Red Hot Poker flowers lighting up the gardens. Not much else was in flower which is to be expected in mid-winter.
As I was taking some very nice shots of the flowers a Noisy Miner came to feed on the flowers. This was within 2 metres of me and it didn’t seem to mind me moving around trying to get the best angles and the best light on the subject. I love it when birds seem to be posing for me!
