Redthroats at Alice Springs Telegraph Station

I have managed to see Redthroats once before, but didn't manage to get decent photos. I had been told that they were hanging around the Telegraph Station and Mark Carter was able to give me more specific directions. Thank you Mark. Going up the track, I was expecting nothing as most of my experiences of targetting specific species have turned up zilch, but on this occasion, I managed to firstly hear them (I had re-checked their call from my Pizzey and Knight app on the iPad in the car), then see them, then get some half decent photos. Not a bird I see lots of photographs of, so hope you enjoy. The male kept its distance a bit more but the female was very obliging. The male is in the first couple of photos with the red throat, the female doesn't have this feature.

  1. wow, lucky you Richard. I was there a couple weeks back myself but no Red throats :(. I hadn't even heard of them to be honest, and I too have that wonderful Pizzey and Knight iPad app., just love it.
