TCB Bird Walk

Continuing our walk along the Tin Can Bay Foreshore we came across Rainbow Bee-eaters, Pied Oystercatchers, Silver Gulls, Bar-tailed Godwits and Blue-faced Honeyeaters just to name a few.

Did not know it at the time but there was an Immature Pied Oystercatcher among those we photographed. It is the one in the middle, with pale legs, dark tip to the bill, and no red around the eye, so it was good to see some young made it this far.

Nice to get good photos on the bird walk. The juvenile Pied Oystercatcher is really great.

What a cool birding day. The Honey eater is just gorgeous! Great bird and photos!

A lovely spot for a walk.

I reckon that oystercatcher photo would make a great foundation for an abstract painting.

Not only do you have great birds, but both birds and places also have wonderful names. Great photos - the bee-eater is my favorite.
