There are magpies everywhere. This one lived by the beach, quite a long way from my home.
Spotted this big bird during my visit to my sister in Warrnambool.
I’m not sure what this one was up to. There were a pair in a tree. And this one was acting like a woodpecker!
Don’t be shy. Let’s see you.
What are you doing?
I’ll get closer.
Your mate above, is watching you too, wondering…
I saw this beauty by the side of the road last week. I wish I had been quicker to focus on him when he flew away.
I haven’t been able to be out and about, so I included a random assortment of birds today.
…..while having a quick bite to eat.
These were all lined up along the same stretch of bank. They seemed to be very happily co-existing.
I’m not sure about this one. I think it is an egret but it could be a heron. Apparently they are very similar.
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?
