Lake St Clair National Park

I deleted all my photos from last night this morning. I was in a rush to photograph this Yellow-throated Honeyeater and formatted my chip without remembering I still had photos from yesterday. doh! The main photo that I deleted was of a Fan-tailed Cuckoo, but I have photos of them, so whew! This morning I think I saw a Pink Robin but it was too quick to get a photo. double doh!

Finally I got some decent photos of this elusive Tasmanian endemic. I wonder why they call them Yellow-throated Honeyeater ???

So good I had to post two photos.

Olive Whistler
Olive Whistler (Pachycephala olivacea apatetes)

Another good score – the Tasmanian sub-species of the Olive Whistler.

Grey Fantail
Grey Fantail (Rhipidura albiscapa albiscapa)

And another Tasmanian race albiscapa.

Tasmanian Scrubwren
Tasmanian Scrubwren (Sericornis humilis)

I like the background here of sawn wood.

I think this one is a juvenile because he is so dark.
