A selection of bird pics from the last week or two..

Scarlet Robin, Munro

This is a juvenile male who is still developing his red plumage on the chest. He still even has some of his down feathers. Very cute.

Superb Fairy Wren, Wonthaggi

This male was along side a popular walking track in Wonthaggi and seemed very used to humans and not worried much at all.

Golden-headed Cisticola, Wonthaggi

These guys are often seen briefly perching on vegetation surrounding swamps and are usually heard more than seen. Their harsh buzzing and whistles are very distinctive in wetlands.

For any of you wildlife photographers in Gippsland (or anywhere for that matter) I’ve recently created a facebook page Gippsland Wildlife Photographers. Feel free to join up. The more of us networking and sharing pics the better!

Cheers,

Craig
