Den of Nargun outing.

Hello Everyone,

Took a drive up to the  Den of Nargun, situated off the Dargo road.
First stop was to have a walk through the bush at a spot off  Beverley's road, the birds here were very quiet, in fact in the bush we saw no birds; but 4 Emus were in the paddock at the end of the bush track.

 After a nice picnic lunch my wife and I headed down the track, which is very steep in places to the Den. Half way down we came across a tree with 8 King Parrots feeding, male and females. On our way back the parrots were still there not at all concerned as we were only about 20 feet away and the same height as them, these are lovely birds to watch.

Back to the car park, heard some noise high up one of the gum trees, a couple of honeyeaters were busy, they turned out to be Crescent Honeyeaters.


Then it was onto a friends house at Fernbank who had previously told me of an unidentified bird in their back yard, I was lucky to get a photo and the bird turned out to be a Satin Bowerbird.
Another good day of birding in the East Gippsland Area.
