At the beginning of November we went to Krambach for a couple of weeks. I was
on my own for a few days - so I did some serious birding (as didn't have in tow
a husband who doesn't understand my obession!!) however I took that many photos
that it has taken me quite a while to get them in order!
Among all the usual suspects, we had a few springtime visitors such as a
White-throated Gerygone, Olive backed Oriole busily building its nest, a pair
of Satin Bowerbirds, Scarlet honeyeaters, brown-headed honeyeaters, some noisy
Dollar birds and Common Koels. Also swa ones that I don't often see such as
both the Golden and Rufous Whistlers who were nest building, red backed fairy
wrens, a sacred kingfisher, a little black cormorant who flew into our dam, and
a large family group of King Parrots.
Ones that were first time sightings for me were Varigated Fairy-wrens, a Rufous
fantail, a flock of Scaly-breasted Lorikeets and Musk Lorikeets who were
together with Rainbow Lorikeets in a flowering gum tree, Black-faced Monarchs
building a nest and a group of Grey-crowned Babblers.
Also saw quite a few snakes this time - which is unusual and not something I am
all that pleased about!
However, once again I need some help identifying some birds. I have posted
these photos on Flickr.
1. I know that it is unlikely, however could this be a grey falcon? It has a
yellow cere and legs and has facial markings.
2. I was certain at the time that this was a Richard's Pipit. However, when
looking at a few bird books I am now not as sure.
3. These photos are not brilliant, however is this a Horsfield's bronze-cuckoo?
4. Is it a stubble quail?
5. Once again, I am confused about my flycatchers!! I saw a pair building a
nest but even after looking at the photos for a while I am not sure if they
were Satins or Leadens. But don't they build a beautiful nest!! I am leaning
towards a Satin as the breast marking looks to be concave? in relation to its
Any help will be appreciated!!
