Hello Macaw

Fri 23rd December 2011

This is a red Macaw Parrot. Here he is with his handler, Teeneil. He was very friendly and could do lots of tricks.

I think he’s wondering what I’m doing behind the camera. Either that or he’s striking a pose!

It was very interesting to see the birds after the show and see how they respond directly to their keepers.

 

Wedge Tail Eagle

Fri 23rd December 2011

This is a photo of the huge Wedge Tailed Eagle in flight at the free flight bird show. He’s well trained; flying back and forth between the trainers and skimming only 4-5 inches over the spectators heads!

This is the huge Wedge Tail Eagle! Massive wing span and very impressive talons. I wouldn’t want to be prey around this fella!

Birds of Prey show

Fri 23rd December 2011

Today we took a trip to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast. We attended a free flight bird show and it was certainly an eye opener!

Matt

Matt says...

The free flight bird show was very impressive. The birds flew right over our heads quite a few times. Perfect opportunity for photographs!

This Eagle was magnificent when in flight. It’s wing span was huge, I had to duck several times when it flew over our heads!

 

Gold Coast love

Thu 22nd December 2011

We arrived on the Gold Coast today and check out this glorious beach – just minutes from where we’re staying. Can’t complain eh!

Matt says...

This isn’t a view I’m accustomed to seeing on the 22nd December. Not one you really get in England at this time of year. Miles of beach, completely deserted. Where’s the snow? :)

 
Claire

Claire says...

The Gold Coast is a huge stretch of beach on the east coast of Australia. I think I’m going to like it here!

 

It’s not Christmas with that view!

Thu 22nd December 2011

It really doesn’t feel like Christmas with a view like that. We’re staying with a friend of a friend for a couple of days until Christmas Eve. As you can see it’s right next to the beach!
