Birds at Cranbourne Botanical Gardens

At last we get to the birds. I’m told there are 178 species at the gardens and counting but I only had a limited time and not the best light to capture images of all those I did see. So here are a few I saw during my visit there.

Sacred (Australian white) ibis flying overhead. We also saw a much larger flock but they were very high and a further distance away.

Blue (male) Superior Fairy-wren who literally came to my feet but I had a long lens on so had to stick with images of him a bit further away from me.

Wood swallow. I hadn’t seen one of these before.

New Holland Honeyeater. There were lots of these in the formal gardens.

We also saw swallows, kookaburras, a variety of honeyeaters and other small birds in the bushland area. Couldn’t capture decent pictures of them all, this time round.
