This afternoon I had a chance to take photos of waterbirds nearby, both north near the Moruya River and south, near the Tuross River. We live in a beautiful part of the coast where rivers, lakes and lagoons are abundant, attracting a wide variety of waterbirds. Some of these birds visit our tiny ICOLL and others I can see by walking a little further, but the stretches of water near the big rivers provide habitat for treasure troves of birds. So you can tell I was out in the car again, parked perilously close to the highway, but absorbed in capturing images of these beauties to share with you. Here is the highlight of the afternoon, Chestnut Teal glowing in the westering sunshine. You will also see an Australasian Grebe in breeding plumage. More birds tomorrow!
It was tricky capturing the Grebe, he would dive just as the camera clicked, and all I got was water! However this one was successful.
