Stirling Range Retreat

Next morning at the camp at the edge of the Stirling Range National Park.

Twenty-eight Parrot


Twenty-eight Parrot – Australian Ringneck (Barnardius zonarius semitorquatus)

I think this one is a hybrid or mix between the Port Lincoln and Twenty-eight Parrot. I will call it for definite the closer I get to the far south-west.

Elegant Parrot


Elegant Parrot (Neophema elegans carteri)

They are very similar to the Rock Parrot but do not hang on the coast.

Western Rosella


Western Rosella (Platycercus icterotis xanthogenys)

Red-capped Parrot


Red-capped Parrot (Purpureicephalus spurius)

Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo


Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus latirostris)

Blue-breasted Fairy-wren


Blue-breasted Fairy-wren (Malurus pulcherrimus)

yes it was a Blue-breasted Fairy-wren as I first thought. Thank you Raymond. and Nikolas.

Inland Thornbill


Inland Thornbill (Acanthiza apicalis)

Weebill


Weebill (Smicrornis brevirostris occidentalis)

Tree Martin


Tree Martin (Petrochelidon nigricans)

Gilbert's Honeyeater


Gilbert’s Honeyeater (Melithreptus chloropsis)

Looking like a drowned rat after a bath.
