Birds around Diggers

The birds have been loving the warm weather, and though it is starting to “cool” off a bit, we still have quite a variety just around the homestead. The blue-faced honeyeaters, double bar finches, happy jacks, aka silver crowned bablers, bower birds and of course the ever present little blue corellas have all made themselves right at home around us.

Out on the flats to the north, the whistler ducks are in the hundreds, along with a handful of brolgas, pelicans, jabirus, magpie geese, ibis and rajah shell ducks. It really is a birder’s paradise!
