A diary of my daily walks with a 7D, a cattledog and Australian birds.

Driving up to Derby for the day, we stopped at the Roebuck Roadhouse around 30km north of Broome and found a group of around thirty long-tailed finches drinking at a dripping tap beside the driveway.
These guys are popular with caged bird enthusiasts, but it was wonderful to see such a large group in the wild. They are also called the Blackheart finch, but that seems too dark a name to these happy little fellows.
