Birds of Melbourne

With about 800 species of birds including many endemic species, Australia is a blessed land for bird watchers. One interesting fact I noticed is that the birds I saw in Melbourne are used to the presence of human, and can be approached quite closely. The following are my first few shots of birds in Melbourne. More to come.
