The year is going so fast! Already it is May.
The following photos are just a few from the month of April.
1 – Spotted Dove (Streptopelia chinensis)
Spotted Doves (aka Turtle Doves) were introduced to Australia and they have thrived in our cities. This photo was taken an urban Melbourne backyard.
2 – White-faced Heron (Egretta novaehollandiae)
I kept meeting this particular wader as it fed in the creek where I took my daily walk. White-faced Herons are a common Australian native bird which has also adapted to living in urban areas.
3 – Yellow-faced Honeyeater (Lichenostomus chrysops)
I snapped this bird in my backyard. I saw it sitting there preening, and was able to get close. It is just one of the many different varieties of honeyeaters that call my home, home.
