  1. What a beautiful Australia day you had! So many gifts! Many of the birds look quite similar to ours, but with subtle differences. It is always great to see how creation has it’s own little quirks in different corners of the earth 🙂 Beautiful post!

  2. Looks like it was a great way to spend Aussie day.
    Like shots of the White-faced Heron against the crashing waves, gives it a real sense of place. Also the Kestrel shot, They are such lovely creatures and handle the airwaves with ease.

  3. Thanks for another beautiful gallery of birds. I’m not very good at identifying sea birds. I’m sure after reading your blog regularly, I’ll be much improved though. Now I just have to actually visit the sea again. 🙂 How wonderful that you were able to see such a wide variety of species. Thank you for sharing them with us.

    • Thanks Jane, the small waders are very difficult to differentiate and I am still learning how do this. At a distance, it is very hard at times, because they are so small, and fly off if you get too close. The Golden plover impressed me with its golden plumage shining in the sun. Have a blessed weekend:-)

  4. What an awesome Australia Day of birds! I have never seen most of these, so I am delighted! I loved your sighting and capture of the Sooty Oystercatcher and his boldly bright beak. When I saw him next to the Ruddy Turnstone in another of your photos, I was thrilled to see how large a bird the SO is, wow! So many wonderful photos and variety, much enjoyed. Oh yes, the Osprey, I’m glad to know you’re graced with this wonderful bird, one of my top five bird favorites here. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Donna for you kind and generous comments. I was very blessed with that outing, and very excited to share it with my birder blogger friends. I love the Osprey also, but it is rare for ys to see them where we live.Have a great weekend:-)
