Bird of the Week Challenge: 19th September - a bird WAS there

Happy Monday all!

Thanks for all the well wishes last week. Everything is becoming very real and I am getting ready to hand over to my replacement (they will be on board with me in October before I head off in November).

But back to the challenge! I have a lovely work experience student with me this week and this morning he is spending his time analysing Powerful Owl pellets. I thought it would be a fun challenge to look at photos that show that a bird was there. So pellets, 'white wash' foot prints, feathers or even a photo you took where the bird was flying out of shot... Might be a bit of a specialised topic but lets see how we go.

Guess I'll start it off ... evidence of an Eastern Rosella (I think) and a raptor (cannot recall which it was) at Mudgee

This appears to be a popular foraging site for Superb Lyrebirds.

A Golden Bowerbird decorated this bower.

Those lyrebirds were busy in the shot above!
