Hans was busy filling the water bowls when we got home, as there were quite a few birds waiting to greet us.

The cute wee Double-barred Finches were first (they're always there LOL). A female Magpie-Lark soon followed.

I then went for a walk around the grounds and found a Red-necked Wallaby, so I've treated you to two pictures of him.

There was still some water in the dam, being enjoyed by a pair of Maned Ducks.

Back in the garden, with the light almost gone, a female Superb Fairywren popped out of her bush, then Hans found a sweet wee Green Tree Frog in one of the pot plants.

Forest Waterhole

19 October 2019

Early breakfast and it was interrupted by the sight of a Common Bronzewing on the garden fence. Had to take the picture through the window, so as not to frighten him off.

A much better picture this one, than my Lifer shot taken at Bowra some 10 days or so ago!

Then a Suphur-crested Cockatoo landed... such attractive birds these with their crests up.

Then it was off to the forest to see what new had arrived since our last visit nearly 2 weeks ago.

However, we start with some regular visitors, with Bar-shouldered Dove, Eastern Spinebill and a female Golden Whistler.

A gorgeous Eastern Yellow Robin came in for a (very splashy) bath, so thought I'd show you a picture of him all wet LOL. Another 'yellow' bird in Yellow-throated Scrubwren then arrived... he was around for a bit, both in the water and pecking around on the ground around.

Then a bird with remarkable eyes, Satin Bowerbird, gave me a variety of poses. I can't really count that as a Lifer, as I'd seen a female about a week before on the Gold Coast, and we'd also heard a male calling this was the first picture of one though. After that two Rufous Fantails gave me opposing poses in the same shot!

Finally, a rather smart Brown Cuckoo-Dove came back to see us.

Splendid photos, Delia. You are right about the eyes on the Bowerbird.

The stunning male Regent Bowerbird arrived with his lady. She is so distinctive with the black cap.

Following that couple, a Yellow-faced Honeyeater decided he wanted a drink too.

Then another scrubwren Lifer for me in the form of both a juvenile male and a female White-browed Scrubwren.

Thanks Nora, yes... I was right chuffed to see a picture with both those poses from these lovely fantails.

And isn't that catbird a beautiful colour!

Keeping an eye on his wife and child was also a male White-browed Scrubwren, looking quite fierce too LOL.

Yet another newbie and Lifer for me was a White-throated Treecreeper.

A short wander around the forest and I picked up this dead snail shell which we later got identified from a book as a Xanthomelon pachystylum species (not sure if it has a common name.

Waiting to greet us back home were Noisy Friarbird and a female Magpie-Lark.

Indeed I have KC, hope you like him. I'm going to try and use as many as possible I think, some species won't show up too well in a small picture like that though.

After lunch, garden watch continued with, first, a visit from a Rainbow Lorikeet sitting on a fence post overlooking the action going on below.

And that consisted of a female Superb Fairywren with a beakful of insects, so presumably she had a nest with youngsters. Hans did show me an old nest of theirs in one of his nearby shrubs.

Then there was a pretty little Peaceful Dove pecking about with the Double-barred Finches.

A couple of honeyeaters were also looking down namely Brown Honeyeater and Blue-faced Honeyeater.

Another great set of pictures. Love the subtle colors on the female Superb Fairywren, and the blue face of that honey-eater.

Just catching up with this thread after my own month-long trip to Australia (mainly nr Cairns, Queensland) via Singapore. I had thought about writing it up here but fear your great photos and more adventurous approach will upstage my rather more sedentary and relaxed (for which read lazy!) trip something chronic! Did you get up to Queensland?

Thanks so much Nora and Lisa.

Hi John... I'm sure you had a great time in Cairns. I thought about adding that to my trip, but decided it would be far too hot for me up there!! And I had a pretty relaxed time of it really, though we were out birding just about every day. And, LOL, I was in various parts of Queensland for the first month. Initially 12 days in Brisbane, then 3 weeks in the outback before I moved south.

Go on.... please let's have your own report!!! I'd love to find out what I might have seen up top.

A short wander around the forest and I picked up this dead snail shell which we later got identified from a book as a Xanthomelon pachystylum species (not sure if it has a common name.

Waiting to greet us back home were Noisy Friarbird and a female Magpie-Lark.
Hi Delia,

Surely Xanthomelon pachystylum is a species name? It's expressed in the correct binomial form, anyway...

Ummm.... thanks John, but I'm not quite understanding you?

We found a picture in a book which looked like that snail, but it only gave the scientific name. We didn't find a 'common name' for it.
