Tyto sights for the luckless

Open days this weekend and Italian Festival next weekend mean big increases in Tyto visitor numbers. For those not able to make it - and for most who did, but didn't get lucky - a few birds from the past week or so.


Crimson Finch (Neochmia phaeton)


Yellow Honeyeater (Lichenostomus flavus)


Willie Wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys)


Red-backed Fairy-wren (Malurus melanocephalus)


Helmeted Friarbird (Philemon buceroides)

Cheers
