The Warrumbungles

From Coonabarabran I took the road to the Warrumbungles National Park. There is a really nice camping area there so I stayed the night. I even had a hot shower – sheer luxury. In the afternoon I went for a walk along the track to the Information Centre.

Red-rumped Parrot
Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus)

This is the male. The female was with him. They are usually in pairs and the female is lots duller than the male.

Dusky Woodswallow

You can tell the Dusky Woodswallow by the white edge on the wings.

White-winged Chough
White-winged Chough

This White-winged Chough was making a nuisance of himself by hopping onto my rear-view window to have a look at himself. After a while, it got stale and I shooed him off.

Glossy Ibis
Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus)

On the way to Gulargambone, I screeched to a halt when I saw this Glossy Ibis in a puddle of water on the side of the road.
