My observations of the bird life in the Gippsland area.

Another McKinnon's Point Sit.
Last Friday Julie and I went back to McKinnon's Point, no Peregrine Falcons to be seen. We walked downstream about 150 Metres to the first puddle of water and set up our gear. We arrived there at Mid-day which is not the best time for the birds at the water. After 2 hours we had eleven species, not all photographed; but the ones I did catch follow. An Azure Kingfisher flew past and disappeared down the creek.
This is what you photograph when the birds are scarce.
White Browed Scrub Wren.
Yellow-tufted Honeyeater. There were 5 of these and they stayed around for about 20 minutes.
