Violet Hill, Myall Lakes, January 24th, 2009

We stayed at a property just near the Myall Lakes National Park at Violet Hill, which is on the north-western edge of the Myall Lakes. The weather was very hot on the first day. The temperature was probably around forty degrees Celsius. We were lucky to get some shots of birds right next to the camp, thanks to Alwyn! Cheers, mate. I took a quite a few photos of birds which I had never seen before, so I was really stoked. Here is a Female Satin Bowerbird.

Rufous Fantails are gorgeous looking birds and flitter around very daintily. They are a delight to watch and photograph.

A bunch of Glossy Black-Cockatoos were hanging around the water hole. This female was swooping in to have a drink during the hot weather. The female has yellow streaks on the face.
