Unusually, the middle of Australia is having a normal Spring boom for birds. I haven't noticed this in previous years, and it is nice to experience similar events to the rest of Australia. The juveniles have thrown me quite a bit, and thankfully the parents have been around to give me a clue. The Masked Woodswallow was one that really confused me until the parent flew onto a branch beneath the juvenile.
Masked Woodswallow juvenile
A few moments later a young Budgerigar joined the Woodswallow on the same tree
further down the road I came across a bird that I just couldn't finger for an ID. Eventually I decided it was a young Rufous Songlark
There were a few of the smaller birds around, they can be noisy and cheeky. One of them was a Chestnut-rumped Thornbill
Another small bird that is enjoyable to watch is the Australasian or Richard's Pipit
and I couldn't have a small bird post without putting in the Zebra Finch. They have such character and even though I see these a lot, I could watch their playful shananagans all day.
