Baby Zebra Finches - Australian Wildlife

Right at the right time of year, we can see that the baby zebra finches have started coming out of the nests and joining the large groups and colonies. These birds nest in the same trees in and around the environment. These dead trees provide excellent cover and protection from predators. Whilst providing excellent visibility with no leaves in the way to block the view. There are many of these dead gum trees in the region, and these birds have taken a liking to them.

With a renewed understanding and developing of advanced skills with a super long lens, these pictures have become very sharp. You can see almost every feather. Although what can be said for such a common bird; this photograph replaces the earlier photographs by far. It is a good way to see, and also reflect, as I hone my skills in the wild environment with the new camera body. The next task though will be cleaning the camera, as I can see that the images are becoming dirtier with each week.

Your're right, I can even see feathers of the baby birds. And thanks to your post I now know why they sit on dead trees.
