    There's a big colony of these at the botanical gardens. Honestly, listening to their 'tink' 'tink' sound over and over again drives me insane whenever I go!

I took her just before I saw the Juvie Black_Shouldered Kite and in my haste to process that, I overlooked her! Do hope you...

    Striated Fieldwren

    At the northern limit of its range, the delightful little Striated Fieldwren survives in amongst the Gorse (a noxious foreign weed) which is all that grows on this degraded farmland. Unfortunately, a statewide campaign to eradicate the Gorse - in itself a worthy aim - also threatens the...

    Fledgeling Little Wattlebird

    Sitting on the gate making quite a lot of noise waiting for its mother to come and feed it.

    Little Wattlebird (juvenile)

    There are two of them and they are nearly independant. They very rarely stay together so the poor mother tries to feed them by racing from one to the other with food.
