    Photos of the Week: The Life of Birds

With more than 124 native and 18 introduced species of land and water birds, Centennial Parklands is truly a birdwatchers’ (or twitchers’) paradise

This week’s Friday Favs celebrates all of your great photos of the birds that call the Parklands home, including some of their most intimate moments.

To join in the fun, simply share your snaps and special moments in the Parklands. Don’t forget to tag us with @centparklands and #centennialparklands and we will ask permission to use the photos!
