g'day everyone,
In the last week i have observed flocks of gouldian finches feeding on sorghum 
grass seed and drinking at small pools in El Questro Wilderness Park, East 
Kimberley. Long-tailed finches have successfully fledged young in the same 
area, and masked finches are common. I have also seen the elusive Painted snipe 
in the park!

Other birds of interest observed here include:
nesting wedgies and sea eagles
pictorella mannikin
crimson, double-barred and zebra finch
spotted harrier
white-quilled rock pigeon
shining flycatcher
great bowerbird
brush cuckoo
plumed whistling ducks
little woodswallows
yellow-tinted honeyeater
striated pardalote
black-fronted dotterel
