There are actually images from two trips here, but one of the trips both are in flight, so I thought I’d put them all in the same post. The group at Thorneside shows one...
These birds are quite similar, but the Great Knot is a little bigger than the Red Knot, and the red has chevron shaped marks on the chest, while the great has more dash-like marks....
Amongst a whole lot of shorebirds, this one solitary different one (well, of this species), another new bird for my list!
A better photo of a bar-tailed godwit.
I know I already have some lovely photos of these birds, but not one with a tongue out like this! The brush-tipped tongue is for nectar. Or left over fruit and pancakes.
These are gorgeous! And so much closer than the first time I saw them, so I have much better photos 🙂
A third new bird for this trip!
Another new bird from this little bit of wetlands. It was an exciting trip! Three new birds.
Another new one for me. I’d seen people posting photos of a few birds I’d never seen before that they’d taken here, so thought I should check it out!
White-headed Stilt used to be called Black-headed Stilt.
