I'm pretty pleased to say that I recorded the first #pacifickoel in Werribee this evening!
They are normally found as far south as the eastern side of Melbourne with two records in Geelong. I arrived home to hear the unmistakable call... the rest was a kind of involuntary twitcher reaction!! 😜 ...enough said!

Beautiful little #goldenheadedcisticola ...they are about 10cm in length and more often than not they drop into the grass when trying to get a picture like this! #cisticola_exilis #wtppr
A broody #brolga at #werribeeopenrangezoo (We were removing a heat shade when the opportunity arose to take this photo) the bird was not stressed and it has chosen to nest right beneath one of our slumber safari balconies! #wzbpr #grus_rubicunda

The #crestedshriketit is a charismatic little bird with a decent hook on it's sturdy beak which it uses to pry out invertebrates from under old bark among other food. Here he's posing with a White-plumed Honeyeater. #falcunculus_frontatus
Free!! ...enjoy your weekend 🙂

Hi folks... let's break out for the weekend! 😎

The mystical #mistletoebird is a treasure to behold! Ecologically speaking they are responsible for spreading mistletoe plants by eating the fruit, then when passed through the gut, the sticky seed is deposited or wiped off onto a would be host branch and the cycle starts once more. #dicaeum_hirundinaceum
Saw this beautiful #paintedhoneyeater for the first time last week 🤠
