The aggression of Noisy Miners knows no bounds.
Personally I’m not a fan of the little grey ■■■■■■■

#200 Wonga Pigeon - Gipsy Point

Brown Gerygone – Mallacoota. Best shot photo bombed by a stray leaf but a lifer so BH is chuffed. Super hard to capture on film, flit about like nobody’s biz.

I’m pretty sure that the Gerygones flit in and out of our garden and the birdbath…but you’re right about how hard it is to take a photo- & I don’t have a decent camera either so shots are never clear. They are tiny and very cute.

BH is now officially a Swiftie, of the birder variety(Is there any other?), thanks to today’s visit to Chiltern.

Hopefully, they show up at Bundoora Park again this year. Have seen them by the Yarra at Burnley also (2012).

Some pics from the Western Treatment Plant yesterday.

#Little Eagle - BH has been after this lifer for ages and up until yesterday it was always a case of “if only you’d been here 10 minutes ago.” Handsome Devil, it must be said.

I think its a Juvenile Red Capped Dotterell not sure. I now think its a Double Banded Plover ,research is better than guessing.
