This was taken at Hattah. I stumbled bleary eyed out of the van, saw him, quickly turned around and grabbed the camera.
Taken while travelling north of Patho.
These were seen on my travels. I haven’t seen any around where we live. They were up north of us.
I love their colours.
I couldn’t help myself. I love this bird’s feathers.
..with a very persistent Noisy Miner. He was very bold, super smart and had quite a friendly personality, even if he was a pesky miner. His wing colours were lovely. I liked him.
Seen while travelling around.
Couldn’t miss this bird when I stopped in Patchewollock, Northern Victoria, Australia. He was in a beautiful red flowering gum. I think he’s a Spiny Cheeked Honeyeater???
There was a really lovely community garden that I spied while travelling around. It was some quirky art work that drew my attention, but I was amazed by the variety of plants were quietly growing. I had the impression that school kids might have been involved. I was delighted to spot some petunias growing there, in the middle of winter.

To be honest, I didn’t stray far from the car park. It was nippy, not enough to deter a paddler. I found these interesting objects on the sand.
Stayed overnight here. Chilly, no power for the heater, but a really wonderful place. Even in the middle of winter.
