10 comments on “Birding ‘Round The Rock – Uluru Birds (Part 2)

  1. Hi Ashley! It’s been a difficult past month and I’m just now able to get back into my groove. Hopefully, lol! I am catching up and thoroughly enjoyed your past couple posts. Your Ayers Rock captures were gorgeous as well as the numerous beautiful birds you sighted. I loved the sunset shots! Birding around the Rock has been quite an adventure and holiday for you both, how nice! I am sorry to hear the bird guiding proposition fell to the wayside, but then that was meant to be I suppose. Something more rewarding must be in store for you I am sure! 🙂

    • Thanks Donna, yes it was a lovely time in the desert, especially with a few more lifers. We were hoping to see more birds but the drought has affected the desert as well. God has pointed us away from the bird guide thing for now as I am continuing working training staff but on my own terms which is great. I really need time to work on my second book, which friends and family are encouraging me to pursue. I have recently been doing reading research on latest scientific research on birds and neuroscience of bird brains and their behaviours. It is so fascinating and has given much material to assist me when God grants me time to get started. Thanks again for your welcome comments and I do pray things improve for you, I am so please to you are back, you were missed my friend! 🙂

    • Thanks BJ, yes it is quite an unusual landscape and it was quite a treat to see the Sparrowhawk so close before it flew off. The red of the dust is so rich it makes for a great contrast with sky and vegetation.

  2. Another great post showcasing our desert feathered friends. Lovely photos Ashley, and also nice to see some of the landscape in the area. So glad you have seen several lifers on the trip, it’s an added bonus to a wonderful holiday I’m sure. Have a great week! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, it is always a very special and interesting change to explore our red centre, the colours, the vegetation, the birds it is all wonderful. The drought has affected there also with all waterholes dried up. I marvel at how the birds know where to find water out there. Have a wonderful week exploring your new home!

    • Thanks Jen, it is a beautiful landscape in the desert, and even more beautiful after rain when it vomes alive with flowers. The finches were a special treat, and so many of them. It is amazing how these birds do so well in such a hot dry climate. Have a wonderful week!
