I have never been to Tassie to see a Dusky but my money is on a Flame Robin Richard. To much White in the wing for Dusky.


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

A couple of Red-browed Finches looking for seeds in our local Toohey Forest. They did not seem too worried by my being there and allowed me to gradually get a little closer.

Cheers

Dennis

thanks Shorty. I very much appreciate your input.
My photo looks very much like this female Flame Robin (external link)

Certainly not my strong point.
I've amended my post. Now I read up about it all fits.

Thanks Richard, these are quite sociable birds as we sometimes see 5 or 6 all foraging together.:-)

Cheers

The Magpies seem to be getting used to my presence and this one stood around for a while parading itself and foraging for food.

Nice pictures Richard, the Tasmanian Hen has got strong looking legs and looks a bit out of proportion - is it domesticated, does it lay eggs?
Do these birds come into your garden?

Thanks Ray
The hen isn't domestic.
It's a flightless bird and runs like the clappers. It's called Turbo Chook for good reason.
There's two that have become used to my presence and don't flee when I turn up.
Its like any other native bird and raises several young. I saw some babies the other day from another couple. But they're flighty.
Be interesting if these present me with some babies. They maybe more civilised and come close too. Live in hope :-)

And yes they come into the garden often.

I've eaten them but they're tough! There's better options as in domestic chook :-P

Saw this Kookaburra pecking away at a Termite Nest some 12-15 metres up a tree. I suspect it was looking for a place to nest, as its mate was nearby looking on.

This is a 2 shot composite taken with the EOS R6

Cheers
