7 Wotsits from this morning (all Canberra)




All taken within one hour yesterday morning.  1 and 6 were from my street, male koel, and part of tail of female koel in depths of a prunus tree.  Remainder all from Campbell Park.


2 – male Leaden Flycatcher.  3 is quite unfair and shows the ambiguity that can so easily arise in snaps of common birds.  A female Rufous Whistler was evicting a Jacky Winter from its perch.  Philip did well to essay ‘Jacky Winter’.  Here are both birds just before the agonism (a useful noun created from ‘agonistic’, a word much favoured by biologists).  When you get used to the word, you will see agonisms everywhere.

4 – Dollarbird.  5 – A Wood Duck (m).  7 -  a White=faced Heron peers down from its nest.
