    Any idea what this is? - Port Adelaide, South Australia

    Not the Shoveler in the foreground, the Sandpiper looking one. A bit far away so the pics are not the best. Cheers, Mick

    Noisy Miner - South Australia - 28/1/22

    I'm pretty confident this is a Noisy Miner, but is there a reason for the lack of yellow around the eye? Looked at juvenile pictures and they still seem to have the yellow bit around the eye.

    Distant shot and the bird is a little wet and bedraggled. Anyone got any ideas?

    What Egret is this, Goolwa Barrage, South Australia, 20/01/22

    Thanks everyone, the only reason I though maybe an intermediate was eBird (I know, but I'm new at this!) reported sightings of an intermediate Egret in the area, so it cast doubt in my mind. Cheers, Mick

    Smaller than a Great Egret, one of which showed up later, but seems larger than a Little Egret.... Possibly Intermediate, or is it just a juvenile?

    Little Pied Cormorant

    Little Pied Cormorants feed on a wide variety of aquatic animals, from insects to fish. On inland streams and dams they turn to their most favoured food: yabbies (freshwater crayfish).

    Hello everyone

    Hello, I'm Mick from Adelaide, Australia. Recently thought I would have a look into bird watching, thinking it would be a good excuse to get out with a purpose and take some nice pictures. After a week or so, I now realise how much I don't know and how hard these "nice pictures" are to get...

    Bird ID please

    Excellent question, I have no clue. I looked at your link, and it does suggest the Western Whistler is not as limited to the west as other sites suggest but without downloading and reading the paper itself it doesn't really give me any more clues. And the limited sighting and poor picture...

    Bird ID please

    Thanks Delia, it was indeed Adelaide, so Golden Whistler it is! Not sure about news, only decided to look into this birding thing a few days ago, so just about everything is news to me at the moment! :)

    Bird ID please

    Took this today, terrible photo I know, but I think it's a Golden Whistler maybe. Can anyone confirm or tell me what it is? Thanks
