HiFert, Kooragang

We finally have sunshine after three weeks of rain, but it has come with freezing gale-force winds. Even the birds are huddled up for warmth. There were large flocks of tiny birds at HiFert today; silvereyes, thornbills, fairywrens. The Swamp Harrier was cruising the mangroves and the brown honeyeaters were controlling the coral tree.
Bird List:
  • Yellow Thornbill Acanthiza nana (pictured above)
  • Swamp Harrier Circus approximans
  • Willie-wagtail Rhipidura leucophrys
  • Brown Honeyeater Lichmera indistincta
  • White-browed Scrubwren Sericornis frontalis
  • Superb Fairywren Malurus cyaneus
  • Silver-eye Zosterops lateralis
