Looks like a Willie Wagtail to me.

You are absolutely right. I looked at the wrong paragraph in my bird book when I looked it up.

Female Darter & her chick. We spent 1/2 day on the Murray River (WA) on a motorised pontoon. We picked the right time of year to do it. We went mid-week, hardly anyone else on the river.

Nice photo. Are those a type of Anhinga? We have tons of them here in S Florida, they're everywhere. Here everyone calls them Anhingas.

They are certainly very similar, there may be a few minor differences, such as the markings around the eyes, but yes I think they would be from the same family.

According to Cayleys book their population is throughout coastal Australia, South East Asia and Oceania. I have seen them hundreds of miles inland in the upper reaches of the Daly and Norman Rivers.

Yup, black face, grey head - Black Wing feathers with white / grey tints. I would agree. Nice light in number 3!

We have been very lucky to have a flock of endangered Swift Parrots hanging around for some weeks now.
I finally got out to see them the other day.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Great shots and very nice to see several like this. If only they managed to get up to Brisbane a bit more often, would love to see them.
