Out in the cold blustery SW winds this afternoon, still birds to be found.

 

White Faced Heron, hunkered down somewhat out of the wind.

Scarlet Robin, this little guy came up close and personal.

Local Reserve again this afternoon, the Brush Bronzewing(?) would just not get fully into the sun.

Superb Fairy Wren, we can see you!

Trip up Snug Tiers this morning with some snow on the side of the track.

Went to find the Pink Robin but only found one and it did not wait to be photographed, these two did though.

 

Scrubtit.

This mornings walk was on the Side of The Mountain.

 

Found the Pink Robin again today with a female close by, no doubt he was preening himself, before and after!

 

Before.

A quick afternoon walk as I nearly got caught in a squall heading down the Derwent River.

 

Had time before the squall hit to have this Masked Lapwing give me the eye, rightly so, it was probably sitting on a nest.

@soundbyte Love the scrubtit pic. Mainlanders come down here trying to get pink robin pics, but little do they realise that the Scrubtit is the real Holy Grail - unless they're prepared to shoot fish in a barrel and go after an OBP pic at Melaleuca...

 

cheers

@mickj1 thanks.

I was fortunate enough to get over 70 shots of it, not all good though, 24 that are OK.

I was actually after the Pink Robin that day, you can never guarantee your subject with birds the same with orchids.

 

Some good,
