  1. Another wonderful post about the beauty of Nature in Tasmania! Very interesting to hear the call of the black currawong, so different from the pieds we get here. Thanks for sharing your Tassie travels. 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, yes when we first heard the Black Currawong it was so loud and so different from any bird we had heard back home. The sound would travel long distances through the forest. Yes, I think I prefer the song of the Pieds, it has so much variation and is makes for a wonderful start to the morning:-)

  2. Wow! What a neat adventure. Now I think I know how you must feel when I describe an adventure. We see beautiful areas and birds, yet they are so different from what we are familiar with. Thanks for sharing your adventures.

    • Thanks Lee, yes it is exciting for us to meet a completely new creature in the wild. The challenge to photograph and film it adds another challenge. Tassie is a very unique place. quite different from our mainland, and has so many aspects of beauty in scenery, flora and fauna.

    • Thanks Donna, yes the names are quite interesting, some are named by Brittish naturalists who came with the first European settlement and others are named after the original Aboriginal name for the bird or animal. Where you see Robin (that is obviously English comparison, whereas Currawong is a derivative from the indigenous Aborigine language. The interesting thing we noticed, having visited Britain last year and birded there, was that where Europe had only one of a kind Australia would have several, and so distinctions were made in the taxonomy by unique descriptive features, with the red breasted Robins this can be difficult as we have several different kinds Flame, Scarlet, Rose, Pink and Red-capped.

    • Thanks David, yes we really enjoyed this Dusky Robin, my wife and I were quite delighted pursuing it, he acted so like the Eastern Yellow, and we loved the way it observed us but kept its distance. It was shy though and not was bold as the Eastern Yellow.
