Most of the birds were quite familiar for me, and not that unusual. In fact I only got one new bird.
Birds I saw that I won't show you today, but saw.
Pacific Black Duck
Australian Wood Duck
White Faced Heron
I'm sure that I would have seen sparrows and starlings too, but I don't really remember them. I'm almost sure that I saw a white faced scrub wren, but didn't get a proper look at it.
So, what else did I see? And manage to get a somewhat decent photo of? Not surprisingly they're all largish birds.
|My only new bird|
Long billed Corella (Cacatua tenuirostris)
I've seen plenty of short billed corollas before but don't think I've seen one of these
|The rather absurd Australian Scrub Turkey|
They wander incessantly through the bush, so it's hard to get a clear shot
|Until they start charging across the path in front of you|
|They build a rather large, extraordinary mound in which to incubate|
their eggs at a very precise temperature
|The Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis moluccus) are everywhere,|
but not quite as numerous as in Sydney
|I always love seeing Rainbow Lorikeets|
I know I've shown you them a few times before,
but these two were so cute grooming each other
and I like the building backdrop
|One of my most exciting sightings was on the way to the bus stop to leave|
Can't get much more last minute than that?
Blue faced Honeyeater
|Not a new bird for me, but the best pictures I've managed to get of them,|
they're often up in trees instead of exposed on this banksia
