Am spending a bit of time at Lake Nash for work. Lake Nash, or Alpurrurulam, is situated very close to the border of the NT and Queensland. The birdlife is everywhere and some of the scenes taking place as I drove in to the Community earlier this week and around the lake and river are spectacular. Below is a selection of the photos over the past few days:
Australian White Ibis with fish, Torresian Crow looking on
Black Kite - "Come here my pretty!"
Brolga in flight
Brown Falcons playing
Budgerigars in flight
Cockatiels, all the boys together
Crested Pigeon "Austen Powers' Dr Evil"
Flock Bronzewing, female on left, male on right
Little Corella, middle one not impressed!
Masked Woodswallow (lots of these, flocks of over 100)
Royal Spoonbills, one thinks preening is a bit boring
What the ... Australian White Ibis flying with Royal Spoonbill
Royal and Yellow-billed Spoonbills
Straw-necked Ibis - so that's why they have that name!
