Today we scored, though, with four lifers within hours of each other: Yellow-throated Miner, White-browed Crake, Wandering Whistling-Duck, and Red-browed Pardalote. Steve knew the right spots to check for my targets. We spent the bulk of the morning inside a blind at Lake Gladstone, the largest wetland in the Kimberley, taking photos and scoping the distance. Steve set up his 500mm lens with a 1.4x extender on a tripod and let me have a go at this beautiful Rainbow Bee-Eater – nice!
I have only 18 days left at Mornington. More adventures planned afterward, though…
pardalotes are a favorite of mine!
Hey Denise – Yeah, we’ve mostly got Striated Pardalotes here (I even caught one in a mist net!) but Red-browed was a new one for me…
Our entire Pardalote ‘life list’ is Spotted and Striated, Red-browed would be new! Their red brow sure isn’t very big. Hope you can pick up a few more lifers before you are finished.
You’ll have to stop in Hobart for the 40-spotted Pardalote. I guess you are on your way home now. Welcome back. No rain in sight!
