|Yellow-tailed black cockatoo, Doongalla Reserve, The Dandenongs|
It was during a birding walk away from the main group that my companions Richard and Moses pointed out my birding highlight of the afternoon (see Moses video of the YTB and a Crimson rosella at its nest here):
Richard then located this cheeky Golden whistler that had been teasing us for several minutes.
I can claim that I located the White-browed scrubwren and Fan-tailed cuckoo unassisted!
|This botched out-of-focus iPhone shot does actually convey the dreamy feel of the afternoon!|
(added a blurred vignette later on)
|If we forget about the two ankle-biters at the back, we have 370 years of sibling experience in this one picture!|
A further 98 year old sister couldn't make the trip from Sydney.
The Doongalla homestead burnt down, the land reclaimed by government and the bush allowed to re-grow but at the time of Greatie's birth Doongalla apparently looked like this.
Bird on (for many a year)!
