Birdline Western Australia
Published sightings for the week ending 19 Aug 2012.
|Sun 19 Aug
clump of trees near WTP - South Hedland, Western Australia
I was returning to the WTP (on foot) to see if the Pink-eared Ducks were still there (they weren't) when I spotted 2 BW Kookaburras. I haven't seen BWK in the vicinity of South Hedland before so that was pretty exciting, given that most birds today were grounded (its pretty windy). No photo.
|Sat 18 Aug
WTP South Hedland, Western Australia
A number of Pink-eared Ducks were seen on the water's edge, quite late in the day. Will be revisiting in the morning to get a better look and some better photos (tho the fence is a bit of a nuisance).
|Thu 16 Aug
||White-throated Honeyeater, White-winged Triller
El Questro Station, Western Australia
Sat down for lunch at the souvenir shop and the trillers were perched above our heads
The white throated honeyeaters were seen at the car park for Zebedee Springs
King River Crossing, Gibb River Road, Western Australia
Jabiru seen in the middle of the Pentecost river crossing which is located about 70 kilometers after the start of the Gibb River Rd accessed from Victoria Highway 50 Kms from Kununurra
||Star Finch, Yellow-rumped Mannikin
Parrys Lagoon Nature Reserve, Western Australia
Star Finch Many birds present including high numbers of juveniles. These birds were photographed with several other birds 4kns down the track to the lagoon
Yellow-rumped Mannikin (2) Sensational viewing of a pair of these birds. Many photographs taken after walking 100 meters into a paddock where the birds were initially among a large flock of Star finches but when they all flew off the Mannikins stayed on the ground. Undoubtedly the highlight of our WA trip so far
