After a slow start this year, your kicking on nicely. Loving all your photos, so many I have yet to see. Too many to choose favourites, Imlike them all.

Another great set of birds, Karen... that Kingfisher is a stunner with the light on the wings. It must have been wonderful to see so many different birds and the trip seems to have gone really well.

Thanks Dale, I will probably slow right down again now, only seeing new birds at home. But I will try one or two bird trips if I can.

And thanks Abby, it was a fantastic trip. We are already thinking about going back!

Thanks Sue, I expect my current high unique bird count to drop significantly once you start posting from your trip :-).

Yep that Yellow-tufted Honey eater is lovely, and a nice photo to show it off.

Enjoyed all those birds from your NT trip. So many new ones in such a short time! That stork is something ridiculous, but not quite as threatening as the croc.

Those Yellow-tufted HEs are gorgeous. Lucky you to have such wonderful birds visiting.

yes, I do have a few birds to add when wifi is dependable. We were without phone coverage in some places as Optus must have beaten Telstra to the area. At least the public phone was free! Great trip so far. NT is glorious for birders. So very pleased you had a wonderful time.

Wow Karen, looks like you had an incredible trip. So many wonderful birds, plenty I'd never heard of :)

It was a great trip, we are already planning to go back!

It's been a busy few months for me with work and uni and Leo... but while working outside during the week I heard a bird call that I wasn't familiar with, followed the sound and spotted a red head. Of course had camera handy so snapped a pic of him. A rare visitor to my place, nice to see.

122. Scarlet Honeyeater

Thanks Alex :-)

I'm also hearing the White-throated Gerygones a lot lately. I thought I may have posted one from earlier in the year, but seems I haven't. There is usually at least one nesting pair at my place each season, sometimes two.

123. White-throated Gerygone

Love both the Scarlet Honeyeater and the White-throated Gerygone, great photos. Your backyard and surrounds is amazing.

That scarlet head is a standout in the yellow grevillea. The white-throated gerygone would be a new one for me; looks like Spring has certainly sprung at your place!
