  1. What a place to visit! Thanks for sharing all this with us. They are so different than what we see in our wetlands. Some are similar, but others are totally without parallel.

    • We love visiting Wetlands, there are now so many in our country, as local councils convert the sewerage treatment works and other lands into these area as they have realised the potential for tourist attraction and family recreation. Thanks Lee for your comment.

  2. Wonderful wetland photos! I’m a lover of boardwalks through wetlands, I could hang around them all day long. Gorgeous captures of the Corellas, the parent feeding the youngster is adorable!

    • Thanks again Donna, it is great to share our loves with those of like mind and kindred spirit. I am happy we enjoy each others posts, the only problem with wetlands though we love them for the variety of birds and other creatures, is the mozzies. We got bitten several times even with repellent on.

      • Yep, we have those darn flies and mosquitoes. I’ve learned quickly to carry my bug repellent with me during certain times of the year around here too. Some of those hungry critters still want a piece of us. lol 🙂

  3. As our winter sets in here in the northeast of the US, it’s lovely to see these summery, flower and leaf filled shots. Thank you!

    • Thanks Melissa, It is good that we have the seasons at different times to encourage each other that it will not always be the cold harsh winter, but that spring is just around the corner. Though, I have to say that when we arrived home after New Year weekend, here in Australia where I live we have had the coldest days in summer on record ever for summer, and the most rain. It is like winter in the middle of summer, which will return to hot in the next few days. We have had both the hottest and coldest unseasonal weather in the last few months. I am glad I can share some of the warmer summer features with you.

  4. Wonderful to see the Eastern Yellow Robin, we are following a pair at the moment and the young one is just starting to lose its brown chevrons and take on some yellow wash. They are such doting parents.
    Love your Bird of the Week page. Super way to highlight and present a variety of linked photos in a story. All good to go

  5. The Little Corellas are adorable and these are great photos. I do wonder about those waterlilies though. They are not native and look to be invasive. Our local ponds have a problem with non-native waterlilies which have affected water levels for fish and bird habitat. The ponds need to be dredged and they still can’t get rid of the lilies because of the aggressive root system.

    • Thanks Donna, it is good to see you back in the blogs again, I hope you are have a better 2016 healthwise. Yes, it has been a treat having the Corellas around lately, and to see them close up. The waterlily problem is a concern, I did not consider, but now you mention it could become a real problem for the wetlands conservators. I know what you mean, and may be why there are not more birds there. Thanks for sharing, have a great week!

    • Yes this is one of my wife’s favourite birds, especially since they bare the same name. We have had them feed out of our hands on a a walk a couple of years ago.

  6. Very interesting! Wonderful birds and flowers. The Little Corella completely stole my heart! And the Black Swans were very beautiful too. In fact, every creature in nature is beautiful, but I fail to appreciate the lizards and snakes 🙂

    • Thanks Tiny, I have been quite excited running from the house with my camera when I hear the sound of the Corellas flocking nearby on the pine trees. It is a feature to actually see them as they only have a short stay in our area each year. Yes reptiles are always a risk birding in Australia. Some are extremely deadly, but we still go birding! Enjoy the rest of your week:-)
