This Pacific Black Duck made a beeline straight for me, perhaps hoping I had some food.
There were many Welcome Swallows swooping and gliding.
So many sleepy ducks.
Eurasian Coots, with the cutest little feet.
Majestic cormorants. It was only when I got home and looked through my photos that I realised that, of the three cormorants I saw, there were two different species. As far as I can tell—after consulting my field guide—the first and third pictured here are Little Black Cormorants, while the middle one, with the yellow bill, is a Great Cormorant.
A Great White Egret.
A Welcome Swallow at rest.
A cheeky Crimson Rosella.
And gorgeous Galahs.
So much birdlife in one place! What a privilege to call the Blue Mountains home.
