Quite a few responses, thank you.  Suzi B and Philip V got them all and others missed by only one.


1.       Hardhead (Duck) – actually it was a male but not evident in that sliver.

2.       Gang-gang male

3.       Willie Wagtail

4.       Great Crested Grebe, rear end. Some suggested Australasian.  The thin legs and colour, and topicality, might have been a pointer.

5.       House Sparrow.  Mark said sub-dominant male so who am I to disagree.

6.       White-faced Heron.

7.       Tawny Frogmouth – in my backyard actually.  I believe it is the female that has that brownish streak, in this case.  Seen it a few times.

8.       Grey fantail

9.       Zebra Finch, male, from Kelly Swamp, of course

Won’t do this again too soon. Maybe in spring.
