  1. Oh, I love the waders too. Great time of year for you as our birds are making their way South. You get some real beauties in Austrailia. I always love your photos, seeing birds that never make travel to my area. Not much more than crows so far here in Vienna. On the boat tomorrow, so some ducks might be in my future.

    • I guess in heavily inhabited areas of the world the wildlife is threatened and habitat reduced making variety of species much less. This is why it is so vital, as we both know well, that our Reserves and National Parks are preserved and managed well. Enjoy Vienna, how wonderful!

    • Thanks Kathy, yes they have some interesting names, I wonder about the naming of your Red-bellied Woodpecker, it seems to be more red on the head than the belly. I guess people just name it what strikes them the most when they first see the bird:-)

  2. The Channel-billed cuckoos have arrived up here too. I hear them but only see a bit of movement in the canopy. I hope to actually see them in the flesh one day. 🙂 Superb fairy wrens are lovely. They visit my garden regularly. Once again a beautiful collection of photos, videos and information. Thanks for sharing our beautiful creatures with the world. 🙂

    • Thanks Jane, I shot some great pics last year of a Channel-billed in flight while the Currawongs chased it away from their nest, they are a very large bird, and will be currently trying to sneak their eggs into other bird nests, so this is the best time to see them moving about, usually with other birds in tow, trying to chase them away. The male will be the one you see, while the female sneaks her egg into the nest, replacing the genuine one. Yes, the Fairy-wrens are a real favourite, a pair of Splendid Fairy-wrens (found in Margaret River region of WA) are featured on the cover of my new book which I am awaiting delivery today.Have a great week!

  3. A beautiful gallery of birds, again! I’m happy your waders are back! The Royal Spoonbill in breeding plumage is truly royal – I think our Rosa would fall in love immediately 🙂 And the White-faced Heron is stunning. Thanks for the videos too, I love to hear how they “sound”, the Kookaburra’s laughter was marvelous!

    • Thanks Tiny for your welcome appreciation of our bird friends, it would be interesting to see how your Rosa would respond in the presence of my Royal beauty:-) While we were away last weekend we had a wonderful encounter with several kookaburras which will appear in a blog in the future. Enjoy your week, by the way I won accommodation for a week in Florida and Disney entry today, but I turned it down as there were to many hitches with the promotion.
