Readers’ wildlife photos

Why Evolution Is True

Reader Joe Dickinson continues his photographic perusal of Australian wildlife. His notes are indented:

Following on my earlier submission of native mammals from Australian “wildlife parks” in Cairns and Sydney, here are some of the non-mammalian inhabitants of those same parks plus a reptile canter in Alice Springs.  New Zealand up next.
First up is a laughing Kookabura (Dacelo novaeguinae).
A southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius):
 A black-necked storkEphippiorhyn asiaticus:
Central bearded dragon, Pogona vitticeps:
Common goanna or peretie (Varanus giganteus), the largest monitor in Australia and one of the largest in the world:
The very striking Australian pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus):
The terminally cute little penguin (Eudyptule minor) from Australia’s not-too-antarctic south coast.
The ubiquitous and often intrusive Australian white ibis (Theskiornis moluccus).  In the second photo, “junior” has his head well down mom’s (or dad’s) throat to feed.
