Life Of Others (Post#19) : Broome Town Beach & Cable Beach – Silver Gull
Photos of the day are all about Silver Gull. It was captured during the walk at Broome Town Beach located within the stretch of Roebuck Bay not far from Oaks Broome where I stayed while I was in town. And I found a lot of them when I did a walk in Cable Beach, the famous beach in Broome facing Indian Ocean. This gull is said to be the most common gull seen in Australia specially in coastal areas. From what I discovered, it’s a juvenile silver gull if it has black beak and old silver gull if it has orange or red beak. What I really enjoyed about these silver gulls in my memory was the chance to delightfully watch them while in Cable Beach, even though a lot of people in the beach for sunset, I observed the moment seeing these birds enjoying with people without the feeling of being threatened. There is warning about these birds too as they likely may savage your food so be careful with them. These photos are part of 2 Days Broome and Surround Tour October 2016.

Life Of Others (Post#7) : Scarlet Robin
Aside from Tasmanian Pademelon, we saw Scarlet Robin while continuing the walks around Russell Falls. Thinking that it will fly away from us, I took the snapshot from a distance. I was fascinated because I saw this kind of birds on their natural habitat and not in the cages. The photo is part of Tasmania Adventure Photo Collection June 2013.
Life Of Others (Post#3) : Jurong Park – Scarlet Ibis
When I visited Jurong Bird Park in Singapore together with nephew, Scarlet Ibis was one of the bird that we saw inside the park. This type of bird has brilliant coloured and gregarious birds make impressive mass return to tree roosts. These birds usually silent, they make a ‘gurgling’ alarm call and bill clatter when they bicker. They usually found in northern and eastern South America. These bird eats fish, frogs, crustacean and insects. Photo captured last February 2010.
Colors (Post#1) : Jurong Bird Park Entrance Garden
Photo above was captured near the Entrance of Jurong Bird Park which displayed colourful flowers and some used to creatively display a bird shape which the park is all about bird. I visited this place when I was still working in Singapore and went there together with my nephew which just 3 years old as a way to introduce to him different kinds of birds. Snapshot captured last February 2010.
Life Of Others (Post#1) : Wilson Promontory – Crimson Rosella
During the tour in Wilson Promontory National Park, one of the things I enjoyed while at the parking area was being up close and personal with the birds specifically Crimson Rosella (parrot native in Australia). This bird is commonly found in forests, parks, and farmlands. The young one has green with red patches and the mature one has red and blue with a patch of blue on their throats. I observed that they don’t afraid with humans and they easily approached you if you have foods with you. Snapshot captured last May 2014.
