Local Birds at Lake Alford.

After having the dreaded Flu for a couple of weeks, we felt we needed to get out in the fresh air. A short outing to the local duck ponds, (Lake Alford), was very refreshing.
Australasian Grebe (Tachybaptus novaehollandiae)


Australian Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus australis)

Dusky Moorhen (Gallinula tenebrosa)



Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra)
Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia)
Little Pied Cormorant (Phalacrocorax melanoleucos)
Restless Flycatcher (Myiagra inquieta)
For more on this area check out our good friend Mick over at Sandy Straits and Beyond
For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday.

Interesting birds!
When I was writing my post on Egrets, I did not find any info on Egrets in Australia. I'm glad to see you have them, too!

Love seeing all the Australian birds but it just wants me to go there again and see them for myself.

Great finds at the lake! I've only ever stopped there for a toilet break on the way up to Maryborough.
