Double-barred Finch

Taeniopygia bichenovii.

There were heaps of these little guys at Oxley Creek Commons. Could have done with Allan's 600mm lens as they're quite small.

    Quite an interesting bird really ;-)
    I wish! 600mm lenses don't come cheap (I think current RRP is < $12k).

    This is a beautiful shot David. Great little bird, definitely don't get those here in Perth. I love the layers in the image.

    I didn't realise we had them here either, until I saw them ;-)
