Another ABC weather segment photo

Months after submitting this photo to the local ABC, it finally went to air last week. I have slighly cheated by adding their usual information to my own copy as I forgot that it was to be transmitted and looked up over dinner one night to hear my name and see this storm cloud lit by the setting sun! (See my images from December 2005 for my Cullen Bay shot)

Its nice that I have now had two images go to air!

An interesting coincidence Gouldian Finches everywhere!

Having just posted a photograph of a Gouldian Finch to my album and then linked it to this blog, I noticed that Gwen Sprague, who is a medical librarian living in Kansas City and who links to my Flickr album had this photo of a Gouldian Finch,

and another of an incredible indoor aviary on her album site

I asked her what the circumstances. Here is her reply:
"I work in a hospital with a long term care center attached. This is in a lounge area where residents, staff and visitors can sit and relax. Not only can they watch these beautiful finches and doves, to the left is a courtyard with many birdfeeders to attract the wild population for viewing as well.
So cool that you can see the glorious Gouldians in the wild!"
Maybe an idea for the Northern Territory?
