Easter 2016 – Bollon Wildlife

9th – 18th April

The wildlife, particularly the birds, at Bollon was prolific. Erich took so many photos that I decided they deserved their own post.

Not exactly wildlife but isn’t this a beautiful animal. Looking for a drink at Wallam Creek.

Kangaroos in the Cemetery.

White-plumed Honeyeater. What delightful little birds these are.

Yellow-billed and Royal Spoonbills.

There were many of these Mallee Ringnecks (a variety of the Australian Ringneck).

From a different angle.

Plenty of sheep and goats in the adjoining fields.

A female Fairy-Wren.

A White-necked Heron.

What a lovely group of birds – Egret, Spoonbills, Heron, Ibis.

A pair of Red-rumped Parrots.

There were 3 or 4 Brolgas around the waterhole in the adjoining paddock.

A couple of the local goats visited us each day.

I think this is a female Red-rumped Parrot.

Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater.

I think this is a Common House Sparrow.

I had difficulty identifying this bird but after a bit more investigation I think it may be a female Magpie Lark (Peewee).

White-plumed Honeyeater.

Singing Honeyeater.

A pair of Crested Pigeons

I think this is an Immature Pied Butcherbird.

Apostlebirds

Guinea Fowl

A nice action shot.

Great Egrets taking off.

Beautiful Mallee Ringneck.

Regretfully, I have had to cull a lot of photos but have included at least one of each variety of bird that we saw. As always, if I have mis-identified any bird, I am happy to be corrected.

    Good post Lesley and congrats to Erich – where are you at now?

    • Currently we are still at home at RV Homebase, Maryborough. We will leave on Tuesday heading to Broome for a cruise on the 23rd of June. As we have been to the South and North of WA, we will explore the area in between. We expect to be back in October.
