  1. Some great bird sightings there Ashley. The flight shots of the wedgie are perfect. They are beautiful birds to watch. Poor wombat! Maybe the start of mange if he has lost some hair on his back?

  2. What a fine piece of country to enjoy time out and about.
    White-browed Babblers are among the most entertaining of birds and because of their communal approach all sorts of lovely interactions occur.
    The ‘Scissor Grinder’ is such a distinct call and the wonderful rich blue/black makes them a standout bird.
    Hard luck about the gate, but getting home early usually has its compenstaions.

    Keep takin’ pictures.
    We do.

    • Thanks David, yes it was good to see some inland birds for a change, the Babblers and Flycatchers are not seen much on the coast. It was a good day out and Capertee always offers something interesting even the vistas a good reason to visit.

  3. I love the videos and the bird calls. There’s one melodic one at 0:06 – 0:09 in the background of the video of the white-browed babbler. Do you know what bird sings that song?

    Poor old wombat there! 😦

    Sad that the wildlife are affected by the drought.

    Switched to a new internet service provider — it’s SO MUCH faster, so I get to watch your videos and listen to the audio clips without having to wait for minutes.

    Blessings!

    • Thanks Myra, I meant to include and just added to my post that the Noisy Friarbird is in the background of the Babbler clip. The Babbler made many different sounds including whistling. Great the internet is working better for you, it can be very frustrating when it is slow, especially if you are uploading the material for these posts. Thanks for your letter, I will get back to you soon. Have an enjoyable weekend!

    • Thanks HJ, yes we are so blessed to have so many unique species down here, the amazing thing is that we have many variations of the one to Europe’s one, and they are each found in particular locations around Australia. So glad you enjoy our birds!

  4. Another great birding trip. Not only neat birds, but a wombat to add to your sightings also.
    Yes, we had a bit of a scare with hurricane Dorian, but it stayed away from us. Unfortunately, the Bahamas to a tremendous beating. The Lord still controls the storms.

    • Thanks Lee, glad you were spared from the hurricane, it must be a very uncertain and challenging time for everyone. Yes the devastation of the Bahamas highlights the power within the elements, an aspect that secular humanistic man has no power over and shrinks in fear, despite his efforts to go alone without God. Thankfully ‘The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,,,’ Psalm 18:2 Enjoy your week!
