Heat and Flies But Fantastic Filming

I never got enough of watching Rosellas.  While Crimson Rosella is my firm favorite, the clearly delineated colors of the Northern Rosella, though more subtle, have their own unique beauty.

Hooded Parrots were high on my list and one of the major reasons for coming to this area.  Luckily for me, they preferred rummaging around in the burned over areas near the highway.  The family resemblance to the rarer Golden- shouldered parrot is readily apparent.  These 2 young Hoodeds have decided that this white line on the bitumen needs to be made into a passing lane.

Wedge-tailed Eagles like this one are impressive no matter which angle you look.  One of the delights and dreams come true was briefly spotting a single Gouldian Finch in Nitmiluk Park although I didn’t get any images of it.  I got to spend more time with these terrific little Crimson Finches however!
