Mid-north Coast, New South Wales.

I had never seen these sea-slugs before. There were a heap of them at the rock pool at Forster. I asked one of the fishermen what they were and he said they were sea-slug or Spanish Dancers and that he had never before seen them around here and they were more commonly up north in Queensland. I looked them up and they are some type of Nudibranch.

Spanish Dancer
Hexabranchus sanguineus

White-bellied Sea-eagle

This young White-bellied Sea-eagle was being harrassed by a couple of crows. She eventually got the shits with them and sailed off over the other side of the headland.

Emerald Ground-dove
Emerald Ground-dove (Chalcophaps indica)

Emerald Ground-doves are mostly found in eastern coastal rainforests. I think I have not photographed these before. If my memory serves me correct. doh!

Regent Bowerbird
Regent Bowerbird (Sericulus chrysocephalus)

This is either a female or immature bird. Not sure which.

Little Wattlebird

I never tire of of the textures of these little darlings.
