A great selection of bird life Bob .......I assume you are out on the Maylands Peninsula or thereabouts. I am still trying to get a shot of the elusive Blue Wren here .

Thanks mate.
I'm close to both the Baigup Wetlands and the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary. I haven't seen a Blue Wren for years, hopefully one day as I'm told there are a few are around Baigup.

I'm not familiar with those wetlands Mike .maybe new since I moved out of Trigg. My favourites here are the New Holland Honey Eaters . I'm building a new house on the same bush block ,I've put in a lot of bird attracting native plants ............this rain will get them off to a good start. When spring is really here I will attack the Blue Wrens again!

Thanks for looking Bob. There's over 60 species of birds in this small wetlands so I've still got a long way to go before I see them all.
