Signs of an early Spring, with this White-browed Scrubwren gathering nesting material.

White-throated Treecreeper (Cormobates leucophaeus)

Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus)
As I was sitting outside the cottage, movement in the distant trees caught my eye. After closer inspection with binoculars then telescope, we saw that we had a Koala on the property.

Another great series of photos. My favorite is the Scrub Wren - I have never had any luck finding these where the light was good!

Nice photos! You have many birds we never see in the north, but some sort of treecreeper we have too!
Oh, and how nice to have a koala in the neighbourhood! :)

I'm first and foremost a birder but I'd just love to see and photograph a koala like that Neil.

Anni said...

Of course, the koala melts my heart...you Aussies are so lucky to have them on your homeland.

And the tree creeper .... that one is absolutely my favorite of your share this week.

Wonderful birds and that koala! Wow. I can only imagine seeing something like that in the forest. Every one of your birds is lovely.

Denis Wilson said...

Treasure your Koala.
They're under pressure these days.
Not that one seems "worried".
Cheers

Wish I had the knowledge to identify so many species. :)
So glad you included the Koala. That would have been a treat to see.
