10 comments on “Reflecting On the Waterbirds that Stay for Winter

  1. I had missed your beautiful post as I had to travel and had no time for blogging in the last two weeks. You still have so many lovely water birds staying for the winter. I especially liked to see the Chestnut Teal – what a lovely creation!

  2. Loved seeing your photos Ashley, the park looks a great place to visit anytime of year. Good luck with your decision on changing your line of work. Decisions like that are big and scary but working as a guide seems like it would be perfect for you and that you would enjoy it immensely. If the opportunity has come up, maybe it’s the right time for you to make such a big change in your life. All the best whichever way you decide. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Sue for your encouraging comments, it is looking more like panning out to birding part time, as each week now I find full time work more taxing on my health and most of my mates are either part time or like me negotiating life change to part time. I will research it fully when I finish at the end of June. Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks Lee, the Noisy Miners are very aggressive native ‘pack’ birds (classified as a honeyeater) and drive most other birds out of their territory. They different from the introduced Common (Indian) Mynas (note spelling difference) but they are quite inquisitive, it was amazing watching this bird looking at itself on both left and right mirrors, I could see the puzzled look as it tried to understand what was happening.

  3. You know my fondness of shore/coastal birds, Ashley, and this post was marvelous! So many beautiful shore birds that we do not have here in the U.S. Superb captures, and gorgeous reflection shots, with a little fun tossed in! As to your consideration of the part time work as a Eco Tourism Bird Guide, I cannot imagine any Australian who is more qualified. 🙂 You are priceless!

    • Thanks so much Donna for your kind comment, It will be a challenge to get the tour guide operation underway, and will require some research, but am keen to stop the long working days I currently experience in my profession, and start partial wind down in something enjoyable and fitting for my time in life. So glad you loved the bird reflections, these birds are my favourite reflectors. I love you wonderful captures also, your latest Osprey are amazing. Have a wonderful week dear friend!
