Taken sort of central east, near Alpine national park.

1-3 i have no idea about.
4 i'm not expecting any miracles with :p
5 i thought was a nankeen kestrel but those dark splotches near the tail make me consider brown falcon?

Thanks for any help.

#1 is an immature Olive-backed Oriole - female Aus Figbird looks similar, but is unlikely to be in Victoria

#2 is a juvenile Robin [note the gape]. It is one of the red ones - info on habitat would probably narrow it down, but I would guess Rose Robin

#5 is probably a Brown Falcon - it doesn't have the black terminal band on its tail that you would expect with a kestrel.

Regards, Laurie.

Thanks for the help. I just saw the robin on the side of the road while heading up the mountain area but i'm not sure what the habitat would be. I'll just leave it unmarked until i eventually see an adult.

Agree with Laurie on 1, 2 & 5. 4 looks like a Yellow-faced Honeyeater but its a bit difficult to be sure with the photo. 3 looks a bit like a Rufous Songlark, but I'm not sure

Cheers,
John

1 is deffo OB Oriole.

2; one of the robins...

I'd agree on the Songlark. the Honey is throwing me somewhat.

I'm pretty sure 5 is a Brown Falcon; looks too robust to be a Nank.
