Black currawong & friends, Tahune Airwalk, Huon Valley

I was on the look out for those Tasmanian endemics during our April holiday. On this occasion a lifer flew right on to the outside tables of a cafe and said "Here I am, tick me off!"

The Tahune Airwalk is one of those elevated canopy walks. I walked another once in Western Australia. On both occasions I was enamoured with the possibility of some close-up shots of those little feathered creatures that always seem so distant in the upper most branches. Not to be!

I did however come across my first Bassian Thrush sighting for the year. Always a good bird for the year list!

I had caught a definite glimpse of a male Pink robin but only a female posed for photographs.

  1. Tasmania is one place I'd love to visit one day.
