|Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons)|
In search of a decent photo of a Rufous Fantail, the first two were taken when we checked out the camp ground before the actual camp, so we knew where the fantail was. All I had to do was sit back and wait for the bird to show itself long enough for some photos, or so I thought!
While waiting some people came along to ask us if we knew how to get down to the creek, so we told them where the access was. At this stage I had my back to the trees showing them which way to go, when you guessed it, the fantail sat on an outside branch in full view. So back to waiting! The fantail showed itself by sitting on the wire, and then going down to the ground and back again. At this point the battery in the camera decided to go flat, so the photos are not as clear as I would have liked. Looks like we will have to go back and try again. I did have spare batteries, next time I will put in a new one while I wait.
|White-eared Monarch (Monarcha leucotis)|
This White-eared Monarch was in a feeding flock that was moving through the trees along the creek, there was also a Fairy Gerygone which was a new bird for us. 45 species all up for the camp. For a full list go to my pages.For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday.
