Bellbird Corner

G'day Bloggers,
Everyone probably has a 'Bellbird Corner' near them. There are several around here. Duncan has one close by that keeps him occupied and entertained. The one I sometimes visit is about 20km north of home on the Licola Rd. Yesterday I went up and just sat quietly in the gully for a time.

 It was in the middle of a dull, cold day and the birds were quiet for a while. Eventually they began to appear - Eastern Yellow Robin, Eastern Spinebill, Brown Thornbill, Yellow-tufted Honeyeater, Grey Fantail, Grey Shrike-thrush, Blue Wren, Kookaburra, King Parrot, ... were all ticked in a short time.

Aahh, now that's recharged the batteries a little.


  1. It looks like a very nice place to visit and definitely a good way to "re-charge the batteries"!

  2. Just a little birding fix on the way.
