Zebra Finch bath time

These Zebra Finches were having a great time in a puddle at the turnoff to Ampilatwatja (said as "Umm-blood-a-which") which is about 300 kms north east of Alice Springs along the Sandover Highway, which is really just a red-dirt road widerr than other roads around the place. There is a roadside stop with a concrete table and chairs and a shelter above. The puddle was right next to the shelter so sitting still for a while gave wonderful views of these delightful little birds.

Well done Richard, would've been good to watch them.

Cheers, Owen.
