Finally, I manged to get away for a birding trip last weekend. I took the long drive to the NW of Victoria and visited the Mallee region of Victoria. I stayed near a town called Patchewallock (!) and had a great time. The area is very dry, and even has red sand soil that reminded me of Central Australia.
There will be more details to follow: but these are some Crested Pigeons (Ocyphaps lophotes) that I photographed around a watering point just outside the front door of my accommodation. Not at unusual bird, but nice to see them in an area which was more like their natural environment - at home I tend to see them on sports ovals!
