Great Egret pays little mind to missing bill

Eastern Great Egret reveals missing chunk of upper bill as it lands on dead tree at edge of pool.

Hasn't weakened the bird, which vigorously chased off fellow Great trying to muscle in on the para grass providing meagre numbers of grasshoppers and frogs.


Background colour behind the boss bird in Town Common an unplanned bonus.

Hi Martin. Thanks, mate.

Takes a Sheila to show Aussie birders Satin rarity

Oooh, look! What's that shiny black and white bird? It's so smooth and black on back and head. Could it be a rarely seen Satin Fly...
