It's nesting season here for many bird species. This Brown Honeyeater (Lichmera indistincta) was very vocal as it shadowed me for quite a distance, so perhaps there was a nest nearby? Here the bird is shown perched in Acacia leiocalyx which is getting ready to flower. #birds #nature #Australia #myphoto

Magpie Goose (Anseranas semipalmata) at the waterhole. 75-90 cm; span 1.2-1.8 m. #birds #nature #Australia #myphoto

This Long-billed Corella (Cacatua tenuirostris) is on lookout duty atop a dead tree. Its mate is perched a couple of metres below at the entrance to the nesting hollow. The combined behaviour of the pair suggests that there are chicks inside the nest at the moment. This is my first time visiting this particular site and I will try to revisit over the next few weeks in hope of seeing the young ones emerging. #birds #Australia
