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).
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.
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).
A pair of Crested Pigeons
I think this is an Immature Pied Butcherbird.
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.
