Common Bronzewing

The Noisy Miners and other pesky birds were not happy about this Bronzewing occupying any branch, on any tree, on the mountain, but they eventually left it alone.

These pictures are of the same bird. The wingsheen is amazing.


  1. That first photo is fantastic, showing the colours so beautifully. I don't think I've seen one up so close, certainly not close enough to notice their fetching eye features.

  2. I got several beautiful shots like that first one but I think it is a trick of the light. The camera picks up the iridescence and reflection in ways human eyes can't see.
