Some more from Cornwall.  Paradise Park in Hayle has a large collection of exotic birds - it's not that great for photography though as most of them are behind wire.

Hornbill - this is a strange creature that I thought looked more like someone dressed up in a pantomime costume than a real bird!

We think this was an Australian Magpie.

Nice set Gareth, the 2nd bird is not an Australian Magpie - they are Black and White, pretty sure Kobione has posted photos of them, but they also have them at Chester Zoo

Great set, I love the owl picture and the first one I think I have a bit in a socket set I use at work that would fit the hole above the beak, I always wondered what it fitted.

A really good set of images - I like the owl best, but the lorikeet comes a close second.

The processing works a treat.

I think you're right, Geoff.  How about a "Spreo Starling"?

Lovely set Gareth. As mentioned not our Magpie, ousr are only black & white, and we have a few cheeky ones atm, so I'll try to catch them as they are different to your magpies.

I'd never heard of a Spreo Starling either, what lovely colours and yes, we do have lorikeets here, but rarely on our property.

The eagle looks like one of our Wedgetail Eagles. Magnificent. The rainbow lorikeet is Australian also. They had adapted quite well to life in cities here.

They had an area that you could go into, where the Lorikeets were flying.  You could buy cups of 'nectar' to feed them with.
