One of the little towns in the Mary Valley is called Imbil, and here we stayed at a B&B called Patchwork Cottage to undertake the next survey of birds in the area. We managed to get 61 species over 2 days.
Patchwork Cottage backs on to Forestry, and the birds seen provided a Patchwork of Colours against the green of the surrounding forest.
Just how many shades of green are in the bird world I would not like to even guess at, with the Green of the Catbird, King Parrot and Emerald Dove as well as the Satin Bowerbird female.
There was the Black and Gold of the Regent Bowerbird male, Pink and Grey of the Galah, Black and White of the White-headed Pigeon.
Brown of the Brown Cuckoo-Dove and Tawny Grassbird.
Black crown, Chestnut throat, White breast and Cinnamon buff underparts of the Eastern Spinebill, and all the colours of the Rainbow Bee-eater.
Green Catbird (Ailuroedus crassirostris)
Australian King Parrot (Female) (Alisterus scapularis)
Satin Bowerbird (Female) (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus)
This is not a very good picture, but I have included it to see if any one has noticed any barring on a female Satin Bowerbird before.
Tawny Grassbird (Megalurus timoriensis)
Just a short walk down the road from Patchwork Cottage you come to Yabba Creek.
Black-striped Wallaby (Macropus dorsalas) Scrub Wallaby
Some of the locals.
