A few other birds from the drive up, then around Elliott, and the drive home to Alice Springs this week:
Probably the most spectacular sight for the trip, a flock of Glossy Ibis (this is about a third of the flock) at Renner Springs, about 625 kms north of Alice Springs:
And guess who ... a Buff-Banded Rail to really put the wind up me as I could see a nice clear pale white chest, but it is still a BBR!
Cattle Egret in the distance
Dragonflies doing the natural thing you do in a flood!
Emu (first for the year!) Adult also had two juveniles with it. Seen near Muckaty Station. Not sure if they were checking out the site of the nuclear waste dump or not.
Red-backed Fairy-wren, a poor photo but hopefully will see some more in a couple of weeks. This male was with a female but they were both gone pretty quickly.
White-winged Fairy-wren, at a roadside stop called Attack Creek, between Banka Banka Station and 3 ways.
White-winged Triller female.
