I would appreciate any clues how to identify Tree M's
from Fairy M's when they are on the wing.
I find it virtually impossible to keep my binoc's focused on
the head of a flying bird,....and it is often a long time before they
I have seen both species flying together. At the sewage
ponds when they do rest up they will select different powerlines but out
bush they settle as a mixed group.
At rest, I have no problem identifying the head
Our local birds when flying never look as different as
illustrated in the field guides.
