Dusky Woodswallow (Artamus cyanopterus)
Not long after the turnoff, flocks of Dusky Woodswallow were flying over the paddocks and perching on fences. Some landed in a tree and stayed long enough for photos.
Eastern Spinebill (Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris)
This beautiful Eastern Spinebill was taking nectar from Salvia growing beside the road. I have been trying to get photos of this species for some time, and was lucky enough to have this one in the right place at the right time, just as we were heading back to the car to go home.
Lewin's Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii)
While we were boiling the billy for lunch, this Lewin's Honeyeater decided it was time for lunch as well.
Variegated Fairy-wren (Malurus lamberti) (Male)
Then the Variegated Fairy-wren family decided to check us out. Good place to have lunch when all the birds came to us.
Shining Bronze-Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx lucidus)
Just a short walk from where we had lunch, we came across this Shining Bronze-Cuckoo.
New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae)
New Holland Honeyeater were all around the area, and this one was gathering dead flower petals for nesting material from the Wild Tobacco.
