Far North Coast Birds

Iluka Breakwater.

This morning it was raining and miserable at Iluka breakwater. The birds were all sopping wet. You can tell by all their wet feathers.

Blue-faced Honeyeater
Blue-faced Honeyeater (Entomyzon cyanotis)

A couple of Blue-faced Honeyeaters were sitting on a dead tree on the beach. Sopping wet. I have been seeing quite a few of them up the north coast. I never noticed them so much the last time I was up here.

Grey Butcherbird
Grey Butcherbird (Cracticus torquatus)

This Grey Butcherbird was wet and miserable as well.

Brahminy Kite
Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus)

I took some photos of the surfers at the breakwater and then this Brahminy Kite came cruising by really close to me. Lucky I got this one because I had my camera packed away and had to rush to get it out and just shoot away. Good luck or good management. ha ha. 🙂
