Whyalla Wetlands Afternoon

In the afternoon I went back to Whyalla Wetlands. I was not expecting anything and most of my expectations were met! No sane bird would be out in this heat.

female White-winged Fairy-Wren


female White-winged Fairy-Wren (Malurus leucopterus)

I think this might be an immature male Splendid Fairywren but I am awaiting confirmation and possible correction from the experts. Edit: I was wrong. female White-winged Fairywren. Thanks John Tongue for the identification.

Sharp-tailed Sandpiper


Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (Calidris acuminata)

Note the red cap on top of the head.

New Holland Honeyeater


New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae)
