Terricks Trip

These were seen on my recent trip to the Terrick Terrick National Park, about 10 km away as the crow flies. (30 if you go by road).

This is a prickly pear (Opuntima, I think). It a very invasive plant and illegal to cultivate. The ‘pears’ are apparently edible. There were a few plants growing wild.

My husband spotted this bird. I don’t know what it is. Any ideas?

  1. Wheel Cactus (Opuntia robusta). Parks Vic did roadside Wheel cactus control last year along Terriicks ridge road but there are little pockets throughput the park. That looks like a healthy one!! The bird is a Brown Tree Creeper (Climacteris picumnus).
