OK. He's a mammal, not a bird. But he does fly. A Tube Nosed Bat.

Thanks Steph,
Hello everyone
I'm new to birding, but had intrest in trying to photograph birds for several years.
These are some great pictures everyone has posted here.

Thank you Tony and Dominic - I really love the pictures you posted. Lovely.

The Golden Pheasant is fairly common in captivity and I hope to get a pair this year.  The Gouldian finch is seen with a purple breast and either a black or red face, in the wild.  In captivity, they have been bred into many mutations as seen here.
