Perth Trip Part 2

Here are some more from my Perth trip. Hope you enjoy them. Part 3 still to come :)

Spotted Pardalote - A new one for me. There was a pair nesting in a hole in a rock wall. I would have loved to have stayed there to get some more shots but I didn't want to disturb them too much.

White-cheeked Honeyeater

New Holland Honeyeater. Not a new one but I liked this shot. There are so many of them over there compared to Brisbane.

Musk Duck - I called this one the Bachelor as it looked like the 3 bachelorettes linning up. A new bird for me too!

Blue-billed Duck - Another new one for me. This one was displaying for his lady friends.

I love the spotted Pardolote, and the HEs.  I have watched them nesting in a dirt bank,wonderful to see.  Thanks.

Nice shots ... interesting behaviours you have captured from the ducks. 

Quite surprised you had to go all the way to Perth to find a spotted pardalotte! Amazingly beautiful little birds

Fantastic Dev, I love that spotted Pardalote photo, by time i worked out what that bird is, they are usually gone.

We get plenty of New Holland down south along with Musk Ducks though I dont see many Blue Bills where I am from 

Those Duck photos are classics as well

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

Yeah I know right. We get them around here in the colder months but I have never seen them.

There was a pair at Reabold hill. Walked up from the park side and he was in the rock wall around the second bench.
