Inland Pilbara Two

I made it to Karijini National Park after a mammoth drive from Exmouth. There was great scenery but no birds. I was very disappointed.

Torresian Crow maybe


Torresian Crow (Corvus orru)

I think this is a Torresian Crow. Corvids are a nightmare to identify. They all look the same to me. I can only go on range. doh!

Blue-winged Kookaburra


Blue-winged Kookaburra (Dacelo leachii occidentalis)

About a hundred kilometers towards Port Hedland, I stopped at Bea Bea Rest Area and found this amazing creek going through these small gorges. There were quite a few birds about and there was even a bit of water in patches in the creek.

Painted Finch


Painted Finch (Emblema pictum)

I think this Painted Finch is a tick for me but I cannot remember. Maybe I saw them three years ago in northern Queensland.

Zebra Finch (Taeniopygia guttata)bra Finch


Zebra Finch (Taeniopygia guttata)

Diamond Dove
