    SY, or Sydney: First things first, what are these weird birds wandering around Central?
    [​IMG]

    Ah yes, Central. It does exist! :old Those of you who know my newer WC character, its namesake. ;)

    I climbed the harbour bridge Pylon for only $6.50 - a few metres below the bridge climb, but $200 cheaper!

    Let's have a look at the bridge from the other side...

    O Scaly One:

    How about lifting weights with... air?

    This was also a very cute paper mache style display at the PHM.

    Cool, thanks! I had a feeling somebody on this site would know. :lol:
    I've never seen them round here before, it must be an east coast thing.

    Yeah, no kidding. :D I unfortunately did not get to take the train to Circular, or else I would've snapped that one too. :lau

    The birds are so awesomesauce. They float around near O Scaly One too. :lol:
    When you come, you have to visit Adelaide too, if only for one morning. lmao

    I have been to Sydney SO many times! Those are nice pics you got. Those White Ibises are everywhere here! They use their beaks to eat rubbish out of bins, it's quite sad. Central station is cool. I always use the train system to get around. [​IMG] O Scaly One! I think it looks more like three dolphins, uh, piggy-backing each other.

    Yeah, we saw a lot of the ibises foraging around in dumpsters in the city. I fed the ones outside O Scaly One. We had a few leftover chips. :lol:

    Yeah, the whole Scaly One thing... I think it stemmed from my last trip to Sydney, and how we noticed it looked kinda scaly up close. :p

    I love trains. I always find some excuse to take the train when I'm there, adelaide's trains are pretty lame compared to those. :lol:

    Oh yeah, and can anybody help me identify these birds too? Saw one at the botanic gardens:

    Sorry the picture is not so close-up, I tried to get close but it flew away.[​IMG]

    Ah, thank you so much! :D
    Now I know where to come when I need help with birds I've never seen before. :p You guys know everything... :lol:

    I'll see if I can dig up some of my older pictures, I have gotten a lot of pictures of weird birds.
