More Birds from Churingas B&B

This post is for Wild Bird Wednesday.

Following on from the last post, this Fan-tailed Cuckoo flew in and landed right in front of me while I was taking photos of the Grey Shrike-thrush.

Fan-tailed Cuckoo (Cacomantis flabelliformis) (Female)

Grey Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla harmonica

Scarlet Honeyeater (Myzomela sanguinolenta) (Male) 
Scarlet Honeyeater were calling all around us.

White-throated Treecreeper (Cormobates leucophaeus
I followed the White-throated Treecreeper for quite some time before it finally showed itself long enough for this photo while it was working its way up a tree trunk, and the Willie Wagtail was happy to just perch on a stump.

Willie Wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys)

Will finish off the birds of Churingas B&B next time.

I like them all - but the Shrike Thrush is a favourite of mine. It shows you don't have to be crazy colours to look good and I like its voice as well.

PPS: I've bookmarked the B&B - it looks good!
