@@Treepol whereabouts on the Yarra did you spot the Tawny Frogmouths? An excellent sighting. They're normally so well camouflaged and so still during the day that they're very hard to see. I've only seen them once.

 

Musk Lorikeets another good sighting - difficult to capture on film I would think as normally active and high up whenever I've spotted them.

A great selection to start off the year. I always look forward to seeing the birds from Australia. The delightfully named Welcome Swallows are lovely.

@@Caracal Come and visit me. I have Tawny Frogmouths nesting in my street and another pair around the corner. Not there all the time but they do have their favourite perches.

Glad you are doing a second year - It's a good way for me to learn a bit more about Australian birds. Beautiful photos!

@@Caracal I've just heard back from the guide who says the Tawny Frogmouths were at Banyule Flats Reserve. The Musk Lorikeets are certainly very active, however I was lucky that when they settled to feed it was possible to get a few decent shots.

 

@@TonyQ @@xelas and @@michael-ibk, thanks - why don't you come and see our amazing birds for yourselves? :)

 

@@Geoff - duh, I know that bird #2 is a Masked Lapwing, I have no idea why I typed at Wattled, anyway a friendly moderator had corrected this foxes paw (faux pas). Thanks for the stellar recommendation of the Melbourne Birder. We had a great day with Steve, especially at the Western Treatment Plant where the shorebirds and waders came thick and fast, ducks were very well represented. Unfortunately we dipped on lyrebirds and pink robins in the Yarra Ranges NP.

 

@@Peter Connan - thanks

@@Treepol , that is an excellent idea; maybe 2021 to celebrate 20 years of our first (and only :( ) visit to Down Under ?

@@Treepol I suspected you knew it was a Masked Lapwing. I was going to ask whether you went to the WTP with Steve. It's a shame you dipped on Lyrebird & Pink robin. Though it does give me some ammunition to wind him up next time I see him. :)
