  1. So many beautiful birds and other God’s creatures, Ashley! The Hooded Plover and the Black-faced Cormorant were great discoveries, and I loved the little fur ball, the Tasmanian Native Hen chick 🙂 The videos of your cruise and the White Wallaby were also marvelous, and the Bennett’s Wallaby mother and baby were adorable too. So many “goodies” on this trip! Thank you for taking me to Tasmania, my dear friend.

    • Thank you so much Tiny, for your wonderful comments, I love sharing my experiences to enrich and encourage others. It is wonderful that we can do this for each other, as I love what you are sharing with similar delight. There is so much to share and I can only share a little as time is so precious. Your safari photos, and commentary are still vivid in my mind as I respond to your comment. Thanks again Tiny my kindred hearted friend, have a restful but interesting weekend:-)

      • You guess, I’m sure, that I will pay a visit or two to check on my close friends at the salt marsh this weekend 🙂 Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, my friend 🙂

    • Thanks so much Donna! Yes, you would have a field day over there like in Florida,there are just birds everywhere you look shore birds and passerines, not to mention the marsupials!:-)

    • Thanks Donna, the Masked Lapwing alias Spur Winged Plover is a very unusual bird in many ways, but takes a good pic. This is the bird you hear most in the background Australian movies other than the Kookaburra and Magpie. Considering they lay their eggs in an open hole in the middle of an open park or field where people and animals pass, they survive and flourish in large numbers remarkably well.

  3. Wow, what a wonderful trip you had in Tasmania. All those birds and animals you were able to see. Bruny Island is a beautiful place, I never knew so much wildlife was there. I loved your videos and you have some excellent photos of birds in mid flight. Just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your adventure. 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, I am so delighted you enjoyed sharing our experience, there are so many more photos but you just get to the point where you say that’s enough for now. I would love to go back for the bird festival later in the year to sell my book there and check out the island again, but I am not sure I will be able. Thanks so much for your encouraging comment:-)
