In this late winter walk we didn’t see a great variety of birds but enjoyed visiting a new and attractive area with three different habitats … paddocks, light woodland, and a large dam.

In the paddocks a number of Wood Ducks were enjoying the winter wetness. I also enjoyed my best sighting of the day, which was two Jacky Winters, as I do not remember ever seeing them in our district.

Wonderful woodland

At the dam we spent some time studying two parrots who conveniently stayed in one spot, before deciding that they were Blue-winged Parrots.

Birdwatching in comfort!

We also closely looked at some Mistletoe hoping to see a Mistletoe bird, but were unable to identify a small bird flittering around in it.

Gorgeous reflections

After enjoying the pleasant walk we sat in comfort for morning tea and were delighted to see two raptors...a possible Little Eagle, and a Wedge-tailed Eagle.
