York and Northam

After arriving at York, I went for a walk along the Avon River in the river park. There were heaps of Western Corella, the first I had seen thus far. A few water birds were swimming in the river but there were signs warning not to go in the water because it was toxic! yewwww.

Western Corella


Western Corella (Cacatua pastinator derbyi)

Western Corella


Western Corella (Cacatua pastinator derbyi)

The Western Corella has a very long upper mandible and the longest/highest crest. And no pink on the neck.

Hardhead


Hardhead (Aythya australis)

This is an adult male Hardhead. I have not seen one for ages.

Eurasian Coot


Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra)

And a very young Eurasian Coot chick. Already very big.
