[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
The last of my photographs of birds from a recent trip to Perth. It is worth mentioning that all these with the obvious exception of the black swan were taken in the yard of the home where I was staying or the street nearby - the bird variety even in a suburb of this city is quite amazing.

These birds descend in a nearby park by the dozen - this one was outside my window one morning.

Hint of slight over-exposure, Alan, but all in all, it is a wonderful presentation of this bird native to your continent.
Thanks.
