  1. What a wonderful pre-Mother’s Day treat for your wife…and you too! Loved the videos, particularly the mother Grebe feeding her baby and the last, seasonal one. I had also never seen a Musk Duck! Thank you for this beautiful post, Ashley.

    • Thanks Tiny, for your encouraging appreciation, it was a wonderful day out for us and the weather was so nice. I love the beautiful clear cool autumn days of May, they are so good for birding. Yes, the Musk Duck is a most unusual bird, quite different from all the other duck species. Enjoy your week my friend:-)

  2. The Eastern Rosellas are gorgeous in colors! Such beautiful photos throughout your post. I giggled watching the little grebe going for the fish from the parent! I thought to myself, “kids, always demanding!” lol

    • Thanks Donna, these little ones were continually squawking the whole time, I think the poor parents were sometimes at a loss to know what to do. One poor Grebe parent went down many times and came back with nothing but the baby kept on complaining. Yes, and our Rosellas are very beautiful birds:-)

  3. Thanks for another series of photos from your adventure. Those Musk Ducks are a little weird, because the part hanging down looks like a rudder. Therefore it is at the wrong end of the duck. 🙂

    • Thanks Lee, it is a most unusual protuberance, and one wonders if it has a function other than making it attractive to the female. It reminds me of the Ethiopian lip disc adornments to make woman more attractive to the men.
