About Me

My photo
This blog started when we lived in a Carwoola, a rural residential area close to Canberra. We are moving to a split lifestyle with an apartment in Civic in Canberra and a larger house at Mallacoota in Victoria. Posts about the new residences will start when we complete the moves.

Martins Red-backed Kingfisher and (yet more) Frogmouths

The first two images show Fairy Martins (and no back-chat about that name please) doing fly-bys at their nests in a creek at Dunlop. Nearby a pair of Red-backed Kingfishers have excavated a nest burrow and one of them was kind enough to pose for me. Finally, I have for the first time in daylight seen both of 'my' Frogmouth chicks.

Hey Martin,
Good photos - you'll have to give me directions to the red-backs at Dunlop. Were we close last Wednesday?and you've done well getting the 'martins' - I had fun at catching them at Kelly's with my new camera. (Good for practising!)
