I spent an interesting and enjoyable day at the wetlands at Bicentennial Park photographing the birds. Here are some of my photos.
I managed to get a good sequence of a pelican catching and swallowing a fish –
And more Pelican with fish shots –
Meanwhile, I White faced Heron was wandering around in the grass near the hide –
It stated very still, and then lunged and caught a skink.
Some Superb Fairy Wrens –
One bird that was new to me – a Rufous Whistler –
I had heard its call in the mangroves, and it sounded unfamiliar. So I walked around to one of the wreck observation platforms and was lucky to get a clear shot of it.
Black Winged Stilts –
Red Necked Avocets –
A Great Egret flew down to near the main pond inlet/outlet –
And some shots of a White Faced Heron and a Pied Cormorant-
