Nowra Creek and Bomaderry Creek

After coming down the hill from Kangaroo Valley, I went to the Nowra Creek in the afternoon. You can get to Ben’s Walk from the showground. It is all sandstone country and the track down is pretty steep to get to the track along the creek.

Rockwarbler
Rockwarbler (Origma solitaria)

The next morning I trotted along to the Bomaderry Creek Regional Park, which has a number of great tracks along the creek in burnt out sandstone country. This is a bad photo of a Rockwarbler but at least it is a tick, I think.

Yellow-faced Honeyeatar
Yellow-faced Honeyeatar (Caligavis chrysops)

Olive-backed Oriole  - juvenile
Olive-backed Oriole (Oriolus sagitatus) – juvenile

There were quite a few Olive-backed Orioles around but I did not see any adults. I do not know why.

Noisy Friarbird
Noisy Friarbird (Philemon corniculatus)

The Noisy Friarbirds eat bugs as well as nectar, it seems.

Yellow Thornbill
Yellow Thornbill (Acanthiza nana)

White-throated Treecreeper  - female
White-throated Treecreeper (Cormobates leucophaea) – female

This is a female White-throated Treecreeper with the red patch under the chin.

Red Wattlebird
Red Wattlebird (Anthochaera carunculata)

A classic photo of a Red Wattlebird feeding on some red wattle, and displaying his red wattle quite nicely.

Satin Bowerbird
Satin Bowerbird (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus)

This Satin Bowerbird is either female or a juvenile. I cannot tell which.

Common Bronzewing
Common Bronzewing (Phaps chalcoptera)
