  1. Great post Ashley, looks like you had the best time there with all the birds. The white tern is truly beautiful, and I’d love to see the tropic birds. Definitely need to go to Norfolk Island and check it out myself!

  2. What a great experience you had, birders’ heaven indeed! Loved the Tropic bird and Booby babies, and adults too 🙂 I am happy there is such a peaceful place for all these birds to nest in. Wonderful post, Ashley.

    • Thanks Tiny, it is such a peaceful place and several of the birds do not have a lot of fear of us being near them. We loved that it was not so busy, noisy or commercial, in fact it was in an island time warp. Have a restful weekend my friend 😊

  3. Love it! Another adventure, well told and documented for us to see and enjoy. Tropicbirds are neat. Especially getting to see them nesting.

    • Thanks Maralee, we were like little children exploring new frontiers, it was so exciting experiencing the Tropic birds flying around us, and coming right up to us to check us out.

  4. Such a wonderful experience for both of you Ashley! How blessed you were to see such beautiful creatures enjoying life. I can’t get over how that white tern just balances an egg. And then the baby just sits there calmly on the branch. Aren’t God’s creatures just amazing?! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Thanks Kelly, yes the survival of the White Tern is an amazing story, it seems so impossible that an egg can just balance in a pine tree, but they do, and the Terns are in large numbers. It is a birders paradise.

  5. I’ve recently found out that several pairs of red tailed tropicbirds nest in the crevices of Castle Rock, which is near us. Apparently it’s the southern most point they fly to, to nest. I’ll be going back later in the year to try and see some.

    • Thanks for sharing Chris, yes we have looked at Castle Rock for the Tropicbirds when we have been in the Margaret River area but we have been there the wrong time of yea each time. The best places to see them where we have seen are Lord Howe Island, Norfolk Island and Lady Elliot islands, but Norfolk is the best of all.

  6. Gotta say there is something really special about being able to sit with these birds and have them fly by at head height.
    Sounds like you had the best trip.
