Landed in the coastal city Perth this morning, the capital of Western Australia, where I’ll be roughly based for at least the next two months. Nigel Jackett picked me up… and what did we do? We went birding. Here are a couple photo highlights of our afternoon walk around Herdsmen Lake in Perth.
|Possibly the first photograph of a *swimming* Black-tailed Native-hen???|
|Ahh that's more like it. These dryland cousins of swamphens, moorhens, and coots (which there were plenty of here), typically stick to the interior, but lately there have been four hanging aroun this small lake in Perth.|
|My first Yellow-billed Spoonbill of the trip!|
Heading out into the bush for a week, so I'll talk to you all after that. I'm sure I'll have a few tales to tell.
Until next time!
