    As we drove out onto the Airport road we came across a few Crimson Chats feeding in the verge. Rather mobile, it was really tricky to get one fully in view and, as you will see if you look carefully at this one, he was on the run!! It was the only clear shot I got LOL

    This is to wish all my friends on Birdforum a happy Christmas. Or at least as happy as it's possible to be this difficult year. Take care my friends. I can't believe how lucky I was to have had that incredible holiday in Australia last year, so this is a reminder of better times.

    As promised, here's the father of the young chat I showed you earlier. He was on his way to give him a breakfast top-up.

    ... and then... further along the fence Peter spotted the birds which were the main reason for this visit. The most gorgeous Crimson Chat. You'll have to wait for the showy male, this is his child!

    The next Lifer at Bowra was this beautiful Crimson Chat.... but oh my how difficult it was to get a picture! The best part of 10 minutes chasing them up and down the track trying to find one out in the open as they found something really interesting to eat in the plants on the verge!! It was...

    These birds normally live in the outback, but maybe because of the drought they have moved south, so it was exciting to see this one 65 kilometres south-east of Adelaide!

    A spectacular bird - shame I couldn't get closer. These birds are nomadic throughout central Australia. Another rare visitor to Birdforum.
