Continuing my walk along the Bay Trail, there was no shortage of water birds on display.
The Dusky Moorhen (Gallinula tenebrosa) was nestled down in the grass and hiding in the shadows.
The Chestnut Teals (Anas castanea) were all inactive and enjoying some quiet time.
This Black Swan (Cygnus atratus) swam up to me. I suspect it associates people with food and does not have any fear of humans.
This Little Pied Cormorant (Microcarbo melanoleucos) flew by and I had no time for composing the picture, it was a quick snap and hope for the best. A little way down the path I found it settled on a rock, however as you can see in the picture below, it did contemplate moving on as I approached. Once I had the photo I wanted I continued on and it relaxed.
As I continued my walk a Yellow-billed Spoonbill (Platalea flavipes) flew by however the photo I got of it in flight was blurred. However, I did manage a shot of it landing.
