  1. A very interesting and informative post, Ashley! I can’t even pick my favorite among these birds…maybe the White-bellied Sea Eagle, but so many interesting species! Your “bird safari” experience reminded me of the safari experiences I’ve had in Africa 🙂 Beautiful!

    • Thanks Tiny, it was a birding feast for us, yes it was very much like being on a a safari, especially on the plains. The guide was wearing safari type gear come to think of it. The White-bellied has been one of my favourite birds for many years, possibly the first bird I actually spent time photographing, as it lived near me when I lived near the ocean on the north coast. The eagle actually got to know me. The large photo in my book is the one I am referring to. He use to hover over my head when he saw me, and people would wonder about it. Every time I would reach for my camera he would just glide away without moving a muscle. I use to hide from him in the bush to photograph him soaring over the cliffs, but he would always spot me and come and hover inquisitively and then glide away:-)

  2. A bird heaven indeed! I really wish I could drive our RV directly to Broome, I’d be rerouting us tonight, Ashley. 🙂 Big congrats on so many new lifers, fantastic! The ‘treasures’ of the Great Bowerbird and Satin Bowerbird males are pretty fascinating too.

    • Ha ha! yes I would say the same about going to your Chesapeake Bay and Tiny’s Florida, how cool to just take off in your airborne car and land on the road in another country. I was amazed at the birds you posted and other amazing delights in your recent New Mexico travels. There is just so much to see because of our amazing God of great diversity and endless wonders. Have a great time as you continue to tour His garden of delights:-)

    • Thanks so much Sue, it is a very different birding experience in this part of our country. We are certainly wanting to return in a couple of years to do one of their spring courses, and watch another sunset.:-)

    • Thanks Myra, it is lovely to see the similar species in other parts f the world. I think all thee birds of similar design are relatives of the same specie.
