Blue Sky Birding (mainly)

Today I wandered over to Bungendore to see what was going on on the damp spots.  In essence, much the same as last visit except no Shelduck near Trucking Yard Lane and more Freckled Duck at the Lake Road dam.  On the way back a Black-shouldered Kite posed nicely on the powerlines.

After lunch I visited an area near Fairbarn in Canberra.  The bird pictured against the blue sky there is an immature Grey Butcherbird.
The dead vegetative matter is the tip of a redwood tree.
 Here is the foliage of one of the trees.
 This notice explains much of the history of the plantation (click for big),    This webpage also explains a little more.
