In the meantime, a somewhat eclectic group of recent bird sightings.
|PW recently took us to a new wetlands in Drouin (map here) where a family of Hoary-headed Grebes (Poliocephalus poliocephalus) were busy feeding in the shallow water.|
|Although not nesting in this tree on the Lower Newry Road where an old nest sits, this White-bellied Sea-eagle (Haliaeetus leacoaster) was taking a keen interest in some Pacific Black Duck, Chestnut Teal and Grey Teal families in the pond below.|
|Royal Spoonbills (Platalea regia) are fairly common on the Cemetery Road wetlands in Sale but not commonly close enough to get a decent shot. This one was too busy feeding close to the road to worry about me stopping for a few shots.|
