Pemberton Birding

I camped last night at the Arboretum at Big Brook Dam, near Pemberton in South-west Western Australia. In the afternoon I went for a walk along a trail but did not see much. In the morning I set off for the dam and walked along the edge for a while. The highlight was this Mardoo.

Mardoo - Yellow-footed Antechinus

The Western Australia sub-species, leucogaster, is drabber than the nominate sub-species with a white belly. They occur in a broad spectrum of habitats from tropical to swampy to dry mulga country. Their diet consists mainly of insects as well as flowers, nectar, small birds and mice.

Fungus

This fluoro fungus was on the stump of an old tree that had been cut down. This is the real colour. I added no saturation to this photo.
