Yesterday we went to Braeside Park saw a couple of my dream birds, as well as many others. I haven't loaded them yet so here are a couple from the first day.

thanks Dee,

the names are almost as cool as the birds. I know nothing about Australian birds, except that they would probably all be lifers (life species as well as life families and even orders).

Will you be around long enough to start seeing northern hemisphere migrants?
Taking a boat to Tasmania (i.e. doing any pelagic birding)?

I liked the Red Wattlebird best, so far. That Eastern Rosella was too gaudy to be real.

Enjoy

Dee's a big cheater. He 'pre-listed' with that Red-necked Stint he got in
LA a few weeks ago. They winter down under. ;-)

Is there nothing normal in Australia?

dee ee,

Good job on the Frogmouth. I understand they are quite cryptic. Was it making any sound?

I can't wait to see all these wild birds. They are so different from ours, I don't know where in the filed guide to look. Have you seen any Currawongs yet?

Hi- One of you will surely know what this pretty bird is. Daphne and I saw it up at the base of Crystal Crag. Pretty large, dove grey body and head, about 2/3, with a black tail with 2 white bands:

As from the previous page. That is a Clark's nutcracker.

The habitat and elevation are right too.
