Hi All,

Jill and I made the trip to Hume Wetlands this morning thanks to Sandra's excellent directions and information.

The Hoary-headed Grebes were easy to find and they had two chicks - larger than the ones at the Casey Pond and very cute!

We didn't have Sandra's luck with the Dollarbird chicks ... no perching on the fence for us!
We found one of the chicks  and we saw and heard one adult flying overhead and later perched in a bare tree in the woodland area. Although we tried, we couldn't spot the other chick.

Photos were disappointing due to glare and poor light and the Dollarbird chick was quite well hidden.
