As I have written repeatedly, this is not a photographic safari. The birding comes first and the photo comes second if possible. I have managed to get shots of the twelve endemics and I will post them for you. As is often the case, some are merely recording shots, but there are a few that I do quite like. I am grateful. I hope you enjoy them.
|Black Currawong (I just like this shot).|
|Green Rosella eating with its right foot. They are normally left footed I believe.|
|A couple of the Tasmanian Scrubwren|
|Tasmanian Thornbill going away and showing his trademark "white undies" that help to identify them from the very similar Brown Thornbill.|
|Scrubtit. Some would say the most difficult of the endemics. Our friend Graham spotted this one.|
|Three shots of one of Australia's rarest birds, the Forty-spotted Pardalote. We saw one at The Peter Murrell Reserve, but these photos were taken on Bruny Island today where we saw at least five.|
|Yellow Wattlebird recording shot. Anne and Graham have these in their yard, but I didn't get around to taking any photos, so this one will do for now. And there you have the Tassie Twelve!|
|The little "round" cottage. It's cozy and wonderful.|
|The view from the cottage... the owners have 200 acres out there. Amazing.|
|The view inside the cottage. Yes, I could live here (there is an ensuite as well).|
Birds. Peace. Love. Earth. Laughter. Music.
