The Kimberley Rest Areas

On the way to Broome

I took a few days to get to Broome from Port Hedland but it was worth it. There were quite a few birds around the rest areas that I stopped at. The first one is Stanley Rest Area, with a good bit of bush around it.

Brown Goshawk maybe


Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus didimus)

I think this is a Brown Goshawk but it is so hard to tell it from a Collared Sparrowhawk.

Torresian Crow


Torresian Crow (Corvus orru)

I am fairly confident this is a Torresian Crow and not a Little Crow because there are no white bases to the hackles.

Red-winged Parrot


Red-winged Parrot (Aprosmictus erythropterus)

The next day I moved up the highway a bit to the Goldwire Rest Area.

Grey-crowned Babbler


Grey-crowned Babbler (Pomatostomus temporalis rubeculus)

Sub-species rubeculus is smaller with a distinctive rufous breast.

Little Friarbird


Little Friarbird (Philemon citreogularis)

Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike


Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike (Coracina novaehollandiae)

Frill-neck Lizard


Frill-neck Lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii)

grasshopper
