Bird Survey at Giffard



 G'day All,
I got away from ‘work’ for a few hours today and helped Martin and Duncan with a bird survey on a property at Giffard.

  


Among the eucs and acacias there were some banksias that despite the recent very dry and hot conditions were blooming very nicely.



 

Actually, many of the semi mature trees had plenty of new growth on them.

It was a particularly pleasant day spent in good company, cool conditions and plenty of birds to count, including this young Spangled Drongo – a first for me.

  

  

Regards,
Gouldiae.

  1. So the three Amigos spotted a Drongo, I saw a few when I walked down Raymond St.
    I didn't think these came down the East coast so far.
