The Cape Barren occurs in two areas – one the south eastern part of Australia and a second isolated population in Western Australia. They are much less common than they once were, possibly due to the fact that they are large enough to feed a family!
Lastly a Silver Gull. These occur over the whole of Australia, and I’ve included this one because I like the picture! If you see a gull in Australia chances are it’s this one. (Well, not this actual one, but you know what I mean!)

Enjoy the birds.

Lovely images of your beautiful birds.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
The Tasmanian Native Hen is much like our common moorhen but without the red beak. The Cape Barren is unlike any bird I have seen.ReplyDelete
Great photographs, beautiful birds!ReplyDelete
Nice photos, Stewart. I'd like to see the Cape Barren Goose, sometime.ReplyDelete
Nice photos, beautiful birds!ReplyDelete
A great set of pictures. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
I was going through your blog and like you pictures(love sunsets especially) very much. I like your Tasmanian Native Hens - and I know, I will never see them in nature (never say never!). So thank you so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
They are cool looking birds, great sighting. Your photos are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Greetings to you Stewart! These are strange sightings indeed for many of us. And yes, you'd better watch out if you can single handedly feed a family of four! Just ask our turkeys.ReplyDelete
Definitely a neat looking bird. Great captures!ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds, well presented!ReplyDelete
Hi Stewart, re the Black Swans I see in the UK Escapees from collections but they are becoming fairly common. I havn't seen my local birds this year and although I watched them hatch about six youngsters for the past two years the cygnets were always predated after a couple of weeks.ReplyDelete
A beautiful bird to see and I hope I havn't lost them.
howdy Stewart...always interesting birds on your post--Super Photos!!!ReplyDelete
